Better by design! 



Congratulations. By purchasing this copy of 
Amiga Format, you've made a wise decision. 
You've got yourself a magazine written by 
Amiga enthusiasts, for Amiga enthusiasts. 

The staff of Amiga Format are here to earn a 
living, sure. But we're also here because we 
enjoy using Amiga computers, and want to 
enhance everyone else's enjoyment of them too. 
But this is no ordinary Amiga magazine. This 
is the mag that the computer industry has voted 
their favourite magazine, and the top magazine 
in aiding stocking decisions (what they sell, not 
which tights they wear) for the last four years 
running. We're also the magazine that 
Commodore choose to bung in the box with the 

Amiga. Not because we 
always say what they 
like (we don't) but 
because we always do 
our best to give Amiga 
owners good, and 
trustworthy advice.

This month's disks are packed with pro- 
grams. FractalPro is a complete program 
designed to enable you to create 
those fabulous coloured 'Mandelbrot' 
pictures that are used on so many 
rave posters. 

Wordworth 3 is a demo of the 
latest version of one of the Amiga's 
most popular programs. The full ver- 




sion spans five disks, so this demo misses 
out some of the old features to show you 
some of the exciting new ones. 

Tornado is the latest flight sim from 
Digital Integration. This demo gives you a 
taste of what it's like to skim the tree- 
tops in several million quids worth of jet 
powered death machine. 

Toado. Well... it's Frogger, innit!

Campaign II heralds a new generation of War 
Simulations with more depth than ever before 
and fabulous real-time 3D action. 

The depth to Campaign II is provided by the all 
new strategy. Expert Military consultant, Wilf 
Owen, from recent conflicts has brought his 
knowledge to bear on computer gaming with an 
end result that looks and feels more realistic 
than ever before. All aspects involved in the 
running of an army have been considered, so 
that now you can place yourself in command of 
either side, at any level in the chain of 
command. Over 130 templates of the most 
significant military forces from 56 different 
nations of the last 50 years have been 
included to gain an insight into real conflicts 
such as Korea, Vietnam and Operation 
Desert Storm. 

The action takes the form of fast 3D 
graphics if you choose to enter the 
battlefield in one of the 152 types of 
military vehicles. APCs and Mobile 
Artillery, utilise weapons ranging from 
wire-guided missiles, rockets, homing 
missiles, and machine-guns supported 
by laser rangefinders to tracer range- 
finders, night vision, and gun stabilizers. 





Campaign II has emerged as the most comprehensive 
simulation with new improved strategy, at any level in the 
Chain of Command (C.o.C), closely resembling that of a real 
military situation. 

Hands-on action as you fly helicopters in air-to-ground or air- 
to-air attacks. 

Deploy the animated infantry during fierce battlefield action 
in a new improved 3D environment. 

Featuring all the modern weapons systems: guided missiles, 
rockets, homing missiles, laser rangefinders, gun stabilizers 
and night sights.

Fractal Pro is a complete package which enables 
you to graphically display the fractal mathematics 
that are described in the Mandelbrot set. 

The Mandelbrot set was discovered by Benoit 
Mandelbrot and is a set of complicated equations 
which describes the nature of the universe in terms 
of fractals. You don't need to understand all this, 
what you need to know is that FractalPro enables 
you to create some remarkable effects. 



IN SEQUENCE 



Far and away the most powerful feature of 
FractalPro is the ability to construct animated 
fractal pictures. The animations can comprise of 
panning shots, zooms, or combinations using the 
unique tweening feature. Setting up a sequence 
is relatively simple. Just follow these steps for an 
example of a zoom. 

1. Load up an image which will be the start point 
of your zoom (note that the zoom is centred 
on the middle of the image - so a start point 
with something interesting in the middle 
would be a good idea. 

2. Go to the Options menu and select the Move 
submenu. You will be presented with a choice 
of all the "camera" movements possible. For 
this example, choose Zoom in. 

3. In the same Options menu select the Increment 
value. This controls the rate at which the zoom 
will take place. 

4. In the Math menu, select an animcount value. 
This controls the number of frames that are 
actually generated. 

5. If you want nasty flashing cyclic colour in your 



animation, you can use the Cycte set feature. 
Press Amiga-O to call up the requester and set 
autostep. Adjust the rate for the best effect. 

6. Set the saving path (click in the path gadget 
and edit it) and select autosave from the 
Options menu. 

7. In the Project menu, turn on the Sequence 
option. The program may analyse the co-ordi- 
nates it has been given for a while, then the 
Paused message will appear in the title bar. 

8. Press Amiga-D or choose Draw from the 
Control menu. The sequence will now be auto- 
matically generated and saved. A file called 
FPro.seq is created in the RAM disk which con- 
tains the full pathnames of all the files 
generated. 

A tweening sequence can be created by 
loading in two Mandelbrot images one after 
the other. If you notice, when you load the sec- 
ond picture, the co-ordinates from the first 
picture are copied into the lower box. Now 
simply repeat the process above but select 
Tween instead of any of the other options. 
Cascade is exactly the same but is used with 
Julia sets. Make sure that the images have 
been saved as Julia sets beforehand. 



To get FractalPro working, you will have to first 
expand the disk. Prepare a blank disk and have it 
ready before booting from the Coverdisk. Then dou- 
ble-click on the FractalPro icon and follow the 
instructions which appear on screen. You should 
insert your blank disk when prompted and press 
Return. It is very important NOT to press Return 
before you have placed the blank disk in the drive. 

Once the disk has been decompressed, you 
should rename it to "FractalPro". To do this simply 
click once on the disk's icon and select Rename 



DIFFERENT VISIONS 

FractalPro can also produce cubed Mandelbrot 
pktures, Julia Sets and cubed Julia sets. These 
are different types of fractals which are close 
cousins of the standard Mandelbrot Julia sets 
correspond to a particular place in the 
Mandelbrot set The two other types you can 
select an cube versions of Mandelbrot and 
Julia sets.

is Tornado the ultimate flight sim, with knobs on? This exclusive demo gives 

you the chance to find out by flying a full mission. 




BILLED AS BEING unequalled in the 
authenticity stakes, Tornado \s an astounding piece 

of programming. The denin features .\ complete 
mission, a daytime attack on two radai and com- 
munication centres using retarded bombs. You are 
one ot six Tornados and everything from the lull 

game is here, weapons, enemies, the lot 

You start the demo on the runway read) for 
take-olT. It's simple enough, whack tlte engines 
into maximum hv piecing the Shift and + keys 
together, the dials will swing around 10 100%. 

Press + again to engage the reheat, two orange 
lights appear on the right of the control paneL 
Release the wheel brakes by hilling li. The kite 
should now start rolling down the runway while 
your comrades zoom off in front ol you. 

When the airspeed hits above 140 knots, gen- 
tly pull the nose up. When the altimeter shows 
some span- between w>u and the giound, I'eli.ut 
the landing gear by pressing U. Adjust the takeoff 

angle until the pitch ladder on the Head Up 

Display shows around ten degrees. 

II you pull the nose up too high, you'll stall. 

tor> little and you'll nevei get oil the ground. 

Once your airspeed is up to around '21") knots put 
your flaps up by pressing Q twice. Keep a dose eye 
on your airspeed and altitude. Your mission is 
mapped out using waypoinis, map positions pro- 
grammed into the aircraft's navigation system. Just 
By between them to reach your target and make ii 
back. The second way point, B, is straight ahead. 
The direction to each waypoim shows up on your 
HUD as an inverted V on the heading strip. 

Switch to the navigator's seal by pressing Ctrl 

and the back arrow or 9 on the numeric keyboard.

displays using the D key. There are two track 
modes, il RIDE appears next to AI.T in the MFD

THE SEAT AT THE POINTY END 

As you might expect there are a lot of instruments. The vital flight information is shown on the HUD, Head 
Up Display in front of you, so you don't have to refer to the dials too much.

at ihe altitude ihe plane was ai when the autopilot 
was engaged The demo is set to cruise at 200 feet 
Just pull the stick back to raise ihe level. This is an 
air-to-grounri mission, sou are armed with bombs 
to be dropped in lavdown mode. This is the tradi- 
tional bombing attack, where you fly right over the 
target. To arm weapons, hil the Return key and 
die Head Up Display will change to bomb drop- 
ping mode. 

The target will have a little cross over it on the 
HUD. The HUD shows the COP, Continually 
Computed Impact Point. The moment of bomb 
release is automatic but you still twed to be hitting 
the Spacebar or lire button when the aiming point 
crosses the target to confirm ihe attack. There arc 
two targets to have a go at and a sprinkling of sur- 
face-to-air and anti-aircraft defences to worry 
about. Come in low and fast and you should Ik- OK. 

On the way to the second target you may run 
into some airborne opposition, hit Alt and the 
Return key to arm air-to-air weapons and refer lo 
the table opposite for weapons controls. 

II you Survive the attack then there is the com- 
plex landing business to handle. The runway has 
an Instrument Landing System to help you. Use 
the D key to select it on ihe MFD as you approach 
the runway, it looks like a set of cross hairs. You 
need to keep the cross central and throttle down 
to between 130 and 200 knots depending on your 
wing sweep, flap settings and weight. 

This is just a rough guide to the many abilities 
of Tornado. You should be able to get a taste of the 
action - flying at the speed of sound, 200 feet 
above the giound in a combat aircraft, heading 
straight into enemy territory, brilliant! £>

red when something Is

15. Pitch ladder - shows 
the angle of the plane rel- 
ative to the ground. If the 
Pitch Ladder reads +90

heading straight up.

your compass heading, the 
inverted 'V* is the direc-

THE KEY TO IT ALL 

There is no getting away from the fact that flying a 
modern multi-role combat plane is a complex affair, 
just look at this mass of keyboard commands. It isn't a 
full list either, but it's enough to get you airborne and 
causing a bit of damage. Note that all the keys using 
numbers refer to the numeric keyboard. If you have an 
A600 then use the alternatives.

The Amiga will now ask you to insert the 'source' 
disk. It means the disk you want to copy, so put 
the Coverdisk in the drive and press the Return key. 



Wait for a while and it will read all the informa- 
1 tion off the Coverdisk, telling you how far it has 
got. Then it will ask you to insert the 'Destination' disk. 
Put the disk you want to copy your Coverdisk on to. In 
the drive and press the Return key. Note that the disk 
does not need to be formatted already. 



Put the source disk and destination disk in a cou- 
— ' pie more times when the Amiga asks for them. 
When it says "Diskcopy Finished" just type in: 
endcli 

to get out of the Shell or CLI. You may have to put the 
Workbench disk in again. Now your copy is ready!

these won-

The A1200 now sits in the homes 
of 170.000 more people than it did 
last September. 



Remember the advertisement that proclaimed 
'another computer' a Christmas Cracker, and the ST 
and Amiga a pair of Turkeys? Which of those three do 
you think had the cracking Christmas? If we tell you 
that the Amiga 1200 sold in excess of 160.000 units, 
and that the Amiga CD 32 has found its way into over

out for yourselves.

Sega's Mega Seedy, but to ram the point home 
Commodore placed their Sega-knocking ad right 
where it would hii hardest. The hoarding in from of 
Sega's headquarters on Cromwell Road, London, is 
one of the highest-visibility poster sights in the entire

PIRACY 

CRACKDOWN 

CONTINUES 

The Federation Against Software Theft 
(FAST) have struck another blow against 
Amiga pirates with a raid on an illegal 
Bulletin Board called Arcadia. 

FAST investigators, along with officers 
limn Scotland Yard Computer Crime Unit 
.iiid Hertfordshire Fraud Squad, raided an 
address in Watford in December, seizing a 
vast amount of Amiga-based equipment 
including five high-speed modems and 
hundreds of computer disks. 

It is alleged Arcadia was one of the 
largest pirate BBSs in the IK and had 
been responsible for sending and receiving 
illegal software from around the world for 
three years. As an added bonus, the seizure 
of Arcadia's equipment appears to have 
caused panic among other pirate BBSs. 
John l.oader of FAST saw: "Intelligence 
reaching me suggests the bust has caused 
many BBSs to close overnight." 

FAST are on 0628 660377. 



PROGRAMMERS DESERT 

THALI0N 

Top German games developers Thallon 
have experienced a major setback with 
the loss of several key staff to rivals 
Blue Byte. 

Erik Simon, iurie Homemann, 
Thorsten Mutschall. Christian Jungen 
and Tobias Franz - the team responsi- 
ble for games such as Dragonftight, 
Amberstar and No Second Prix* - 
deserted Thalion at the end of last 
year following protracted internal 
wrangles. 

However, Debbie King of Thalion 
UK remains bullish about the com- 
pany's future and claims Amiga titles 
such as Ambermoon will be appearing 
as planned later this year. 



If you thought 
this was good... 

Then you're in for something even better! 

If you were one of those lucky 70,000 people who awoke on 
Christmas morning to find a CD 32 under the tree, you'll be anxious 
to know where you can get the latest and most reliable news, 
reviews and previews of games for your stunning new machine. 
One answer is Amiga Format of course, but we can't afford to 
devote too much of the mag to CD 32 and games because we have 
all that rivetting serious stuff to deal with as well. 

The magazine called Amiga CD which you may have got a 
pilot issue of free with the CD 32 has folded before it ever J 

reached its official first issue. But worry not! Get to a 
newsagent in the first week of April and your prayers will be 
answered. Issue one of Amiga Format's own CD 32 mag will be 
hitting the shelves about then. The name's a secret right 
now, but it will be revealed next month in Amiga Format and 
Amiga Power. But the content is no secret. We'll have 
reviews of every CD 32 game released by the on-sale date, plus 
previews of all the ones in development. We'll have features on Full 
Motion Video and the type of superb 256-colour 3D ray-traced games you 
can expect to see on CD. 

Oh. and there will be a Compact Disc mounted on the cover, packed 
with superb demos, complete PD games and lots more to help you get the 
most fun out of your CD 32 .

Virus clinic 

Safe Hex International, crusaders for a virus-free 
future, promise to keep AF readers informed about 
what's infecting the disks of Europe. February's 
lurgie is the Creeping Eel virus. This bootblock virus 
manifests itself by displaying a German flag and can 
destroy hard and floppy disk root cylinders. Nasty. 

The Descriptor 3.0 Trojan is also in vogue at pre- 
sent and is being spread under two names: 
Descr4.0.lha claims to be a utility to make PowerSnap 



run faster, z-speed.lha unpacks as "Zenith Modem 
Speeder". When either of these programs are run 
they will invoke the Descriptor 3.0, which searches 
the s: directory for a file called 'descriptions.txt'. If it 
doesn't find the file, it crashes the system. If it does 
find it, it deletes everything on your hard drive. 

Don't panic - information is power. Watch out 
for the two files named above, if you obtain one, 
don't execute it. And as for the Creeping Eel, AF sub- 
scribers will find the latest VirusZ on their sub's disk 
to get rid of it. If you don't subscribe, then get hold 
of a copy of VirusZ. or another PD Virus Killer, now.

If you're not happy with the price of 
software, do something about it. That's 
the attitude taken by Steve and Belinda 
Bye of Fl Lkenceware. They hope to 
bring quality games to the public for less 
than £5. They also hope to be able to 
offer the programmers a fair whack of 
the retail price. 

It's a great idea, and one we whole- 
heartedly support here at Amiga Format. 
If you're a programmer with a game 
that you can't get to commercial release, 
give them a call on 0392 493580. 



For some time now, The ARexx 
Cookbook has been considered the 
definitive work for the Amiga user hop-

problem has been that it was difficult to 
obtain outside the USA. Now you can 
get it from Premiere Vision, 31 C Heme 
Hill Road, London SE24 0AX for a mere 
£23.95 including next day delivery. Call 
them on 071-274 4407 and get cooking. 



Can't keep all those keyboard shortcuts in your head? Then this template 
which fits on most Amigas, could be the answer to your memory problems.

about ace coders Intelek, and how they

What we meant was that Intelek were 
taking a temporary holiday from Domark 
for the release of Championship 
Manager Italia. But they will be back in 
full flow on the Domark label later this 
year when they release Championship 
Manager — End of Season and

Last month's rave reviews of Power 
Computing's MegaChip2 ChipRAM 
expansion and XL Internal Drive quoted 
these products as being manufactured by 
DKB. In fact they are manufactured by

due to DKB producing a product called

THE 



^tllTI _i , | 

CO LU LV'LL\L 



Happy New Year people. What's up? Well we have the arrival 
of the Full Motion Video add-on for the CD 32 for a start. 
Some say that this should have come with the little CD gem 
when it was first launched back in the butt-end of 1993. But 
that would have missed the Christmas buying bonanza and, 
let's face it, Commodore need all the immediate cash injec- 
tions they can muster. So, now we're on the threshold of 
FMV, what is it going to mean to you and me? 

In the short term, not a vast amount. Sure we'll get to 
see loads of impressive demos of movies we've already 
seen. Sure we'll see Philips pushing their CD-i FMV on telly. 
Sure we'll hear software houses promising FMV-compatible 
software. But most software houses are not in this business 
for the warm feeling that revolutionary innovation brings. 
They're in it for the readies, so we'll probably be reliant on 
the record companies for the first tranche of CD-based FMV. 

Oh come on Tim, on the one hand you're saying that the 
software houses are 'in it for the readies' while on the other 
you're making us believe that the companies who brought 
us Mr Blobby, Bucks Fizz, The Stone Temple Messiah's and 
Dana will lead the home media revolution. Who's bunging 
you a few freebie trips to Sting's house? 

HOLD OP A minute there! Worldwide, the record companies 
have been suffering like an architecture buff in Slough. 
Since CD became common place and all that was really sell- 
ing was back catalogue, they need a big boost to their 
catalogues like a drowning man needs a desert. And CD+G 
(CD with graphics) hasn't quite provided it. 

However, FMV has been on the cards for a while now. It's 
given all of the big companies time to gear up to releasing 
albums in FMV form. And just imagine the hype when this 
comes on line. The actual change in the home market will be 
akin to the change in computers that floppy disk wrought 
when it superseded tape loading... and then some. Gone will 
be the days of fast forwarding to your favourite track, gone 
will be the idea of playing your fave album and then your 
fave video - you've got both at once. 

Once this form of software is on-line, and non-computer 
users realise that a small player such as CD 32 can do this job 
as well as a £599 CD-i player, or a bespoke Sony or 
Matsushita machine, then the software houses will have a 
market open to them. A new market. 

This is not to say that most of the advanced softies have 
not already begun to explore the market. You can bet your 
top dollar that Sony-owned Psygnosis, or 3D0 originators 
Electronic Arts for example, are not currently exploring a 
technological arena that really will sort the adults from the 
Take That fans. 

Full Motion Video will be full-on home computing for the 
21st Century. CD 32 and the other FMV add-ons (third party 
or otherwise) for the A4000 and (I hope) the A1200 are in 
the forefront, and unlike the ill-fated but brave CDTV adven- 
ture, this time Commodore, you and I have some support 
from outside of the current media. 

OH, AS A final word, always look beyond the immediate... 
who said that FMV had to be the sole concern of games soft- 
ware? Read-write CDs will also herald FMV SuperBase 
Professional SuperPlus, the FMV database, or Wordworth 
X I Ml, the desktop video publishing system. The future is in 
motion now. 

THE OPINIONS EXPRESSED HERE ARE NOT 



AMIGA CD PRESENTS 
MULTIMEDIA FOR LT 



The CD** has already proved itsell as 
more than "just a console*. The power of 
the AGA chipset to deliver complex multi- 
media presentations has been harnessed 
l>\ London Transport for their newly 
revamped museum al Covent Garden. 

The museum, which re-opened on Hi 
December 1993, uses 109 CD :V -s to give vis- 
itors technical and historical information 
about the exhibits, sub-titled video 
sequences, touch screen displays detailing 

the history of die tubes and even an under- 
ground train simulator! 

Unit cost of the delivery platform 

becomes a major issue when the quantity 
nl machines gels this 1'itfl'- And the CD 



Storage medium is perfect for this kind of 
use. Imagine the com of 10<t PCs with 24- 
bii graphic s cards and CD-ROM drives! It's 
safe to assume the ( D :V - s future as a multi- 
media platform is assured. In lact, kieian 

Sumner, Commodore's multimedia sales 
manager says: "We're delighted thai the 
vast multimedia potential ot CIV*- has 
been tapped for such a prestigious project. 
This system will convince any user just 
what the technology can achieve. I'm sure 
that this will be the first of main ." 

Companies requiring information on 

the benefits of multimedia can contact 
Index, the creators of the Transport 

Museum system, on 0256 703426. 



Fast HD card from Power 

Power Computing are unleashing a fast SCSI2 hard drive controller card on to the mar- 
ket. The DKB4091 was originally designed by Commodore and has been licensed to DKB 
for manufacture. It will be available from all Power Computing dealers and other pro- 
fessional Amiga retailers. The RRP is £399. Call Power on 0234 843 388 for more details. 





FMV 



It can no longer he denied that the Amiga 
< D 1 - is more than a console tov. The 
launch of the £199.99 Full Motion Video 
(FMV) add-on for CD 32 proves it, 

FMV, also known as Video CI), blurs 
the boundaries between home computing 
and home video. It is based on the MP1(. 
1 (Motion Pit tuns Expert Group) stan- 
dard which was recently ratified by 
Commodore along with such weighty 
nanus as Sony, JV( . Matsushita. 
Paramount and ( !l) originators, Philips. 

Equipped with the new module. CD** 

Owners Will be able to use CDs that contain 

up to 71 minutes of movie quality (25-30 



fps) footage. Commodore, and the other 
ratifying parties, all claim (hat the quality 
of Video CI) surpasses that of the VMS 
home video standard. Combine this with 
the ( ll-staiidard audio output, and you 
have an incredibly powerful machine. 

I he movie, recording and software 
industries are already developing for the 
format with games, music video CDs and 

even full-blown films ready to ship. But the 
development of the Amiga Video CD add- 
on will not be restricted to CDs developed 

specifically For it. The module will even be 

able to use FMV discs created for use with 
Philips CD-i machines. 



Virgin soccer it to 'em 



I don't know much about football, but I do 
know what I like (Leeds Utd FC inciden- 
tally). But one thing I do know is that we, 
the English, are a bit crap at it. Don't deny 
it. We're not in the World Cup, are we? 

Virgin Games think so too, although 
they'd probably put it in a more subtle way. 
But instead of just sitting back and poking 
fun from the safety of Richard Branson's 
private tropical paradise island. Virgin 
Games have decided to do something about 
it. They've launched the Virgin Games 
Schools Football Initiative. 

This is basically a scheme to get them 
lots of publicity. But we're not knocking 
them for it, and it's not even free publicity, 
because as you can see from the photo 
(above, right), they have given £47,000 to 




Virgin hopes to put British soccer back in line 
for the World Cup with their £47,000 donation. 

the scheme. The money will be used to pro- 
mote soccer in UK schools, and introduce 
the Coerver - one-ball one-player - method 
of coaching to British sports masters. 

The Government's Sportsmatch scheme 
means they will match Virgin's input pound 
for pound. So that's the 2006 World Cup in 
the bag then.

It's a great lark this computing, erm... lark! The 

only problem is it can easily cost lots and lots 

of money. For that reason it's very important 

to make the right decisions before buying 

software and hardware. But what are the 

right decisions? we tracked down some 

Amiga Format readers and asked them what 

they would most like to buy for their 

machines. Marcus Dyson puts AFs money 

where its mouth is ... 



WE ALL KNOW what we would 

buy if someone came along and deposited 
£250 in our pockets, don't we? £250 is 
quite a lot of money, but just falls short «»i 

the cash it would take to buy an Amiga 
1200 or a CD 32 . But would cither ol our 
lucky subjects elect to add some more 
money from their own pockets to buy a 
new machine? Or would they stick with the 
trusty Amiga they have and concentrate on 
software or extr.i hardware? Read on and 
vou will find out... 

On Tottenham Court Road. London's own electric avenue'. Kirsty Gordon 
flashes her wad. TCR has many computer dealers, but the Silica Shop is 

Kirsty's chosen destination. But what did she buy? 




All you need is 




Where serious applications are con- 
cerned, £200 will buv you two or three 
cheaper ones at a push. But with £250. the 
purchaser has to make more decisions. 
forego more alternatives in order to gel 
better value, or a greater number ol pmd- 
ucts. With £250 the buyer is forced to 
make difficult derisions such as whether io 
buy Deluxe Paint 4, or Brilliance. DPaifU is 
very good, but Bnltiance completeK out- 
classes it. Unfortunately, Brilliance also 
costs roughly twice as much as liPami Hut 
with £250 in your pocket, what does it mat- 
ter? But if you bin Dl'atnt, it leaves more LO 
spend on games! l)r< isions. decisions! 

It's not as simple as it first sounds, is it? 
Just thinking about it, you know you could 
spend £250 a hundred times over. Bui 
when vou actuallv have the monev in vour 

re . J 

hands, well it's another ball game. Om e 
it's gone, it's gone. If you waste it in a con- 
sumer frenzied adrenalin rush, vou'll 
regret it later when you didn't get yourself 
a copy of Until um 2, or Skidmarks. 

And. of course, there are conditions, 
well one. The money has to be spent on 
Amiga software and hardware. We went 
out looking for likely candidates to spend 
our cash. Here's what we discovered...

Almost an hour of 
hard shopping later, 
Kirsty emerges from 
the Silica Shop look- 
ing jubilant, if a little 
dazed. Those carrier

of Amiga serious

two games.

an Amiga owner? "Yes, I bought an Amiga 500 about three y 
and upgraded to an A 1200 a lew months ago". 

Why does he feel the need to upgrade again so s* 
doubted that CD 32 was going to be a success, but it soon

So what CD 32 games is David most looking forward to?

already contacted the Silica Shop and 
warned them of our visit. This wasn't 
exactly in the spirit Of die artii le .is we had 
conceived it, hut that's what happens il VOU

When we arrived at the Silica Shop. 

the managei Geofl Mack told us he'd be 
with us in a couple of minutes. He wasn't. 
But since we had arrived at lunchtimc . two 
weeks before t luismias. it wasn't tealh Ins 
fault. Wlien he did manage to extricaU 
himself from his other commitment! lie 
gave its his undivided attention for nearly 
45 minutes. 

GeolY explained that Silica believe 
their prices are very competitive, but il 
people are looking lo spend a lot o| mone\ 
on software, like kirstv was, it is a good 
idea to pop into the shop in person 
because a 'deal' isn't out of the question. 
Margins on Commodore hardware are not 
generous at present, so a retailer has more 
opportunitv to oiler a discount if von are 
spending VMHI on software, mouse mats 
and RAM expansions than if sou were 
spending the whole lot on an AI'JOO. 

Richard bought his first Amiga at 
Silica and both he and Kirsty have stuck 
with the store ever since. He first became 
aware of the shop from an advert in a mag- 
azine. "We're happy with the service we've 
got from them," said Richard, "the) seem 
to know what they are talking about". 

Kirstv had a preltv clear idea what she 
wanted to bu\: A paint program with ani- 
mation, a digitise!, and a sampler an- the 
top of the list." 

(ri'ofl explained that Silica were alwavs 
happy to demonstrate products if cus- 
tomers called ahead to book an 
appointment. But no demonstration! were 
necessary as Kirsty was quite clear what ihe 
wanted. iJrluxr faint 4 U,\. \,di 12 U.\. 
CmtMorph and TechnoSound Turbo 2. What 
provoked these decisions? All of these

ence on Kirsty's purchasing decisions? 
Mom o! the stuff I've chosen is deter- 
mined bv the amount of monev I had," 
said Kinty. "My grant has to cover my rent, 
mv travel and all m\ other expenses." 

Kirsty's choice of Ik//-/ 2 was made by 
comparing a lew digitisers' technical speci- 
fications in advertisements, but in the end, 
she said: "I went and asked some of the 
technicians at college, and they said Vidi-12

uct, but she had enough monev to bit)

est sampler they had in the shop." said 
Kirsty. And CineMorfihr Would she use it as 
pan of her work? M I don't really know, but 
it's fun!" 

On top of (he serious software Kirsty 
needs for her college course, she decided 
she also needed a mouse and some games. 
As Richard helped her hunt through the 
shelves. I chatted with OofT about what 
was shifting off the shelves. 

We're certainly selling more Amiga 
stiilf than Sega games." he said. That's nice 
CO know, but that statement has to In- 
viewed in context Silica are a faith 
average Sega dealer in a street 
packed with purveyors of cut- 
price and import console 
product. Nevertheless. Amiga 
games are selling, and in some 
cases, selling extremely well. 

'Cannon foddtr is doing vei) 

well, as is Brutal Football And 

the old favourite Syndicate is still 

selling ven well indeed." 

Kirstv and Richard finally made 

up their minds and decided on Sim 

Life and Frontier - Elite 2. 

But did those two rather cerebral 
games represent the couple's taste- 
"Richard's favourite game is Sensible Soccer, 
or mavbe Civilization* said Kirstv. 

"But we've seen reviews for Fiontia. 
and we went 'Ooh! That looks really 
good". We read lots of reviews, if we can't 
afford the magazines we go to WH Smith 
and read them." 

Il has to be said now readers, that we 
don't condone this son ol behaviour, but 



we wouldn't, would we? Richard added: 
"I've been waiting lot Inmtm for years'. 
But their A 1200 is oulv six months old. so 
whj the new mouse? "Our old one broke, 
the left mouse button broke." Some things 
never change. 

Now for our sec ond victim... 



When I w-alked up to IVici UagstafTin WH 
Smith and offered him £250 for his son. I 
thought he was going to say "deal" and 
shake me by the hand. I was buying some 
wrapping paper. IVler was standing ahead 
of me in the queue. He was buying a copy 
<>l the fabulous buinpei ( !hi isimas issue of 
Amiga Format. It must l>e a very strange 
experience, someone wandering up to you 
in a newsagents and offering you £250 for 
doing next to nothing, but Mr WagstaiT 
look it in his stride, and the services of his 
son Edward were eventually committed to 
Amiga Formal 

Kdward decided to buy his Amiga 
products by mail order. A sensible move 
when you consider the savings that are to 
be had. But mail order can also be a neces- 
sit\ for those who live in a town such as 
Bath, where specialist computet retailers 
are less common than Amiga power sup-

guinea pig, Edward and his dad had spent 
manv hours, pouring over die pages of 
Amiga Formal, mostly the adverts. 

lake Kirstv, Edward has an Amiga 
1200, bui because he uses it for serious 
applications much of the time, he was 
aware that he reallv needed a hardware 
upgrade. "I'm not sure whether I should 
get a drive, a printer or a RAM expansion.' 
he declared. 

Edward uses databases and spread- 
sheet software, so a hard drive doesn't 
seem like a high priority, but lie also does 
a fair amount of desktop publishing on an 
ancient PC-compatible laptop. "I use it to 
do a magazine, an ecology magazine," he 
said. Understandably, Edward would 
rather put his publication together using 
his Amiga, so a system capable of DTP is 
his objective. 

I lie problem is that DTP is very 
demanding on all aspei ls of a system. Both 
a hard drive and extra RAM are advisable, 
and a printer is a necessity. After some 
weighing up of the pros and cons, Edward 
plumped for a hard drive. A Hick through 
AF revealed Software Demon's 130Mb 
internal 3.5-inch device as the one for 
Edward, and the call was duly made. 

With most of his cash now spent, 
Edward then chose the time-honoured 
route of topping up his expensive serious' 
purchases with a feu* more recreation.il 
buys. Buying games through mail order 
can save pounds. Edward had his eves on 
MicroProse's Fimnuta One Grand Prix which 
is £35 in the local \VH Smith, bul onlv 
£13.49 in Special Reserve's ad. So he did 
the obvious thing and shelled out t7 for a 

one-year membership to Special Reserve. 
He then took lull advantage of theii 

members' discounts to obtain Zooi 2 Foi 
just £16.1)9. He finished off the order with 
an analogue joystick. ("The perfect coman- 
ion to FlGP," I offered) and 50 
Sony-branded disks. "Always a handy thing 
to have around." concluded Edwards dad. 

There is a theory in science called 
Heisenberg's uncertainty principle which 
proposes that in the act of conducting an 
experiment, you influence the sample, and 
therefore affect the result. The paradoxical 
nature of this contention prevents it ever 
actually being proven. But it certainly 
seems to have been the case in our little bit 
of research. 

Kirstv and Richard used the fact that 
Amiga Format would be coming along to 
give Silica lots of free publicity (which they 
actually deserved; they were very good) to 
get an extra discount out of them. 

Peler and Edward came with a big list 
of options and asked us to advise them 
(hey, that is what we are here for) on what 
the\ should purchase. But in the end the) 
both made up their own minds, and we 
found their choices jolly interesting. But if

REGULAR DOSES 

This is the first in a regular series of columns 
about Comms. Over the next few months, we 
will be covering many aspects of Comms, 
including setting up your own BBS, a modem 
round-up and how to send letters to your dis- 
tant cousin in Australia without ever touching 
a pen. Next month we will be taking you on a 
guided tour around Spong!, the Amiga Format 
Bulletin Board, and be giving you full details 
on how to join the revolution. 



OVER THE PAST few years, a quiet revo- 
lution has been taking place in computing. Up 
until a few years ago. contact between computet 
users was limited to a few clubs and magazines 
such as this. But now. many thousands of users <>i 
all types of computers are able to communicate 
easily and relatively cheaply via the public tele- 
phone network. 

Let's take an example. Say you have a query 
about your Amiga. You could ask for help from a 
computer club or write in to a magazine such as 
Amiga Format. Both of these will probably supply 
you With an answer, but il will lake lime. II you 

were involved in any of the various Electronic Mail

One of the most colourful Bulletin Boards In the country 
is Metnet which uses some excellent ANSI animations 
to spice up its menus. 

(E-Mail) networks, you could post a message with 
your problem, and have replies from computer 
users all over the globe within a few days. You 
could also participate in discussions on subjects 
ranging from astronomy to vegetarian cookery. 

Another example: you desperately need a util- 
ity to recover some valuable data from a damaged 
floppy disk, but you don't have the utilih to band. 
You could order it from a I'D company and have it 
delivered in ;i da\ or two. for around £2. 




The revolution will not be televised, but you will be able to dial it up and 
make rude comments about it. Let comrade Richard Baguley show you 
around the unnerving world of comms. 



Alternatively, you could fire up your trusty 
modem, call up a local Bulletin Board and down- 
load it in a few minutes for the cost of a local 
phone call. Doesn't this sound like the sort of rev- 
olution you should be involved in? 

To be part of this revolution vou will need four 
things: at) Amiga, some comms software, a modem 
and a telephone line. Any model of Amiga is suit- 
able because comms does not require an 



accelerated machine or large amounts of memory. 
Tin* comms program you use is a matter of choice, 
but the two most popular programs are XComm 
and Term. Both of these are Shareware, and 
should be available from any good 1*0 library. 
Alternatively, many retailers are now supplying 
comms software free when you purchase a new 
modem, so check what vou are getting if you're 
buying a new modem.

A TYPICAL SESSION ON A BULLETIN BOARD 



Here, we show you through a typical session on a BBSs (The Norwich Amiga BBS 
on 0603 55656). This is a small BBS, running on an accelerated B2000. Although 
it's fairly typical of most BBSs, others may not follow exactly the same 



sequence, so you shouldn't regard this as being applicable to all BBSs. If you are 
unsure of how to find your way around, read through the menus, or ask the 
SysOp (System Operator, the person who runs the BBS) for help. 




.rln » L „. 



I've set up the Norwich Amiga BBS as one of the num- 
bers in my A/Co/nm phone book, so I can call it by 
selecting it from the Dial menu. All of the business of 
talking to the modem is handled by WComm.

As this is the first time I've called this board, it asks me

SPEED MACHINES 




The Rolls Royce of modems is without doubt the US 
Robotics Courier HST DS+, which is used on a huge 
number of Bulletin Boards around the country. 

Buying a modem is like buying a car: the more 
you pay, the faster it goes. And the faster a 
modem goes, the quicker it can send and receive 
data and the less time you spend on the phone. 

So that different makes of modem can com- 
municate with each other, a series of standards 
(also called protocols) have been defined, with 
names such as V22, V22bis, V32 and V32bis. These 
are in ascending order of speed. A V22 modem 
can only send data at the rate of 2400 bits per 
second (that is approx 1/3 Kilobyte) per second, 
while a V32Bis modem can send data at 14,400 
bits per second (approx 1 3/4 K). The faster proto- 
cols can also compress data as it's sent further 
speeding up the process, although this depends 
on the type of data. New protocols (such as 
V32Terbo and V-Fast) will be available soon, but 
they have not yet been completely defined. 

Fortunately, there are a good range of 
modems available, from the cheap to the very 



The nexl thing you will need is ;i modem, 

which is the device for converting the digital infor- 
mation from your computer into a form that can 
be transferred down the telephone line. (See the 
box above called Speed Machines for details on 
die various types of modems available, hut ihev all 
work in the same basic way.) 

The digital data from your computer's serial 
port is transformed into a sound which is sent 
down the telephone line. The modem at the othei 
end converts this back into a digital signal, and 
passes il to the other computer's serial port. This 
process is what gives modems their name: it's short 
for Modulator-Demodulator. 

You also need a telephone line. Most modern 
modems plug directly into the telephone socket 
and have the green triangle approval mark, which 
means that they have passed a series of tests to 
ensure that they won't damage von or the tele- 
phone system. 

However, many modems have not undergone 
this process - see the box headed Seeking

If you have got a big box Amiga such as the A2000, 
one option is the Supra 2400zi board, which fits into 
any Zorro II slot. 

expensive. Check out the Supra 2400 (£74.99) or 
the Amstrad SM2400 from First Computer Centre. 
Or you could probably pick up a V22bis modem 
for around £40 secondhand, but make sure you 
test it before buying. 

If you want a model that can handle the 
faster speeds, try the US Robotics Sportster 
(£249.99 from Phoenix) or the Supra V32Bis fax 
modem (£229 from Power). Supra have also 
recently released a slightly cut down version of 
their popular V32 bis Modem {The Supra 144LC, 
£154.99 from First Computer Centre). If you 
won't settle for anything but the best, you'll 
want the US Robotics HST DS+, which is the 
favourite modem for heavy usage such as setting 
up a BBS. It's expensive, but it is without doubt 
the best - including the new V32terbo protocol it 
will cost you £559.99 from First Computer Centre.

843388, First Computer Centre: 0532 319444. 



Approval For the legal implications oF this. The 
modems are controlled bv a series of commands 
(usually referred to as the Hayes command set), 
all of which begin with AT (short for attention). 
You shouldn't normally need to worry about 
this, because programs such as NCnmm will talk to 
the modem for you, making things much easier . 



you've got your modem, and your software 
is installed on your Amiga. What next? All over the 
country there are a large number of systems 
(called Bulletin Board Systems or BBS) which arc 

connected to telephone lines purelj Foi the pui 
pose of allowing other users to call in and read 
messages and download files. 

We've given you the numbers of six of the 
biggest (see the box headed Six top BBSs), but 
don't worry if you can't find one in your area. Call 
the nearest one to you and check the list of other 
BBS that most cany. Hopefully, you will find one 
in your dialling code which you can call without 
having to fork out a fortune on your telephone 



WATCH YOUR 
TELEPHONE BILL 

In order to show you how much using a 
modem will cost this table shows how long it 
would take to receive a 339K file (which would 
fill just over a third of a floppy disk) using var- 
ious types of modem. The approximate cost of 
receiving this file from a BBS both a local and a 
long distance phone call away is also included.

As you can see, having a faster modem can 
save you a considerable amount of money, 
especially if you are regularly calling long dis- 
tance to get big files. If you are likely to be 
calling internationally, a fast modem is essen- 
tial, because the faster protocols are also less 
susceptible to noisy phone lines. 



bill. Most Bulletin Boards belong to a worldwide 
electronic mail network called Fidonet, which 
allows the Bulletin Board to swap messages with 
any other member of the network. Therefore, you 
can send mail directly from your local Bulletin 
Board to another one on the other side of the 
world with a simple six digit address, such as 
2:255/77. Fidonet also includes a large number of 
conferences (also called Echoes) on a mammoth 
range of subjects from Amigas to Zoology. Fidonet 
isn't alone, as there are several other networks 
such as AmigaNet (Amiga specific topics) and 
Worldnet (various topics). 

It's undeniably true that the comms revolution 
is changing the way that computer users talk to 
each other and it's slowly, but surely, spreading 
into other areas as well. Within a few years, you 
will probably check your electronic postbox in the 
same way that you pick up the mail off the door- 
mat today. 

Comms is still in its infaiuv, but it's fast 
becoming a whole new medium.

SEEKING APPROVAL? 




One of the most popular modems is Supra's 
V32bis Fax modem. But are you risking prosecu- 
tion by plugging it into the telephone socket? 

One aspect of comms that worries many new 
users is the approval of modems. Under the 
terms of the 1981 Telecommunications Act, it is 
an offence to connect a modem to the public 
telephone network unless it is BABT-approved. 
Telephone watchdog Oftel, say anybody prose- 
cuted for this could face a significant fine. The 
law is intended to ensure that modems which 
don't work properly with the telephone net- 
work aren't connected to it, but the cost of 
this approval can be several thousand pounds. 
Supra have been selling low-cost fast modems 
for years, but these have not been approved. 

However, Supra are now seek ing approval 
for their modems, although this will probably 
involve some redesigning, with a possible price 
increase. There are no plans for an upgrade for 
unapproved modems which have already been 
purchased. 



COSTING THE EARTH? 

Comms can be an expensive business. It's very 
easy to log on to a Bulletin Board and spend a 
lot of time looking around or chatting to other 
users. This can increase your phone bill consid- 
erably, especially If If s a long distance call you 
are making. 

Most programs will produce a log file of 
your calls which will allow you to keep a tab 
on your calls, but it is a good idea to use a 
stopwatch or alarm clock to give you a quick 
indication of how long you have been on-line. 

Over the past few months, British Telecom 
have run a series of advertisements, featuring 
world famous physicist Stephen Hawking, 
about how important communication is to the 
human race. 

BT, who make an immense profit have not 
seen fit to follow this up with a lowering in 
the cost of telephone calls in the UK, which are 
still amongst the highest in Western Europe. 
The only exception to this is in the Hull area, 
where subscribers to Kingston Telecom's ser- 
vice enjoy the benefit of very low-cost line 
installation and extremely cheap local calls. 
This means that there is a thriving Bulletin 
Board community in the area, and if s possible 
for systems such as Metnet Triangle to have 10 
telephone lines running. 

For the rest of us, however, getting a new 
line installed to set up a BBS will cost around 
£150, which scares most people off. If BT really 
want to get people using the phone, isn't it 
time for them to reassess their pricing struc- 
ture for both installation and telephone use? 



SIX TOP BBSs 

In order to get you started in comms, here are 
the details for prominent Bulletin Boards 
around the UK.

ate Metnet's animated menus, but they certainly 
add something to the experience of being on line. 

2 - Metnet Triangle 

0482 473871 
The BBS that proves it is possible to run 10 tele- 
phone lines off one Amiga. A vast number of 
files and excellent animated menus. 

3 - Amiga Swopshop

THE 10 GOLDEN RULES OF COMMS 



1 Don't be afraid to ask. If you are having a 
problem with a BBS, or aren't sure about how 
to get what you want, ask the SysOp. 

2 Don't waffle. Remember that other people 
are paying for your messages to be carried 
around the world. 

3 Calling a BBS is like visiting somebody's 
house; you wouldn't walk in, put your shoes 
on the sofa and complain about the wallpaper. 
Don't be unpleasant or vulgar. 

4 Some people seem to think that it's amusing 
to try and put a virus infected file on to a 
B8S. It isn't big or clever, so don't. 



5 



Don't hang up the phone half way through a 
BBS session. Find the option for saying good- 



Check all files that you have downloaded 
with an up-to-date virus checker before 



6 

using them. 



7 



Don't just download files. If you've got a file 
that is not on the BBS, upload it. 



bye, otherwise you may crash the BBS. 



8 Call during off-peak hours, and tell other 
people in your house that you are using the 
telephone. 

9 If you are regularly calling a BBS to read 
messages, investigate using an OLR (Off-Line 
Reader) to gather your messages quickly and 
allow you to read them without hogging the 
telephone. 

1^% Always give your real details such as 
W name, and so on when calling a BBS, and 
never try to get away with a false name. 



5 - Burning Chrome 

0428 727060 
A distinct cyberpunk influence makes this BBS 
well worth checking out.

An enemy weapons warehouse takes a direct hit In 
Zeewolf. the exciting new helicopter shoot-em-up, 



ZEEWOLF TAKES OVER THE 
ASYLUM 

Newcomers Asylum Software - headed 

by former Amiga Format inmates Bob 

Wade and Andy Smith - are set to 

launch their first Amiga-based game. 

Zeewolf, In mid-1994. 

Zeewolf is a 3D helicopter 

shoot-em-up featuring 32 spine-tin- 
gling, missions against a wide variety of 

remarkably evil and unpleasant oppo- 
nents. Chief programmer Andy Wilton 

has incorporated more than ten different 

vehicle types into the game, including 

gunboats, personnel carriers and 

amphibious tanks. There are also some 

truly enormous sprites such as aircraft 

carriers and power stations for you to 

marvel at. Although Andy Wilton spent three months writing the 3D polygon routines 

alone, they are not Asylum's prime con- 
sideration: "Maximum payability is what 
we're after." says Andy. 

To this end. he has invested consid- 
erable time and effort into making the 
game as slick and as fast as possible, 
so the whole thing zips along at a really 
frenetic pace. 

Impressively, the mouse-controlled 
helicopter in Zeewo/f handles just like 
the real thing. It hovers above the 
ground of its own accord, and you Just 
have to maintain thrust and keep tabs 
on your limited weaponry. The game also 
has plenty of neat touches, such as the 
way you can hoist friendly tanks into the 
air and cause plumes of spray by 
machine-gunning the sea. 

Zeewolf is being programmed to 
run on all 1Mb Amigas and will come on 
one disk only, so there's no tedious disk- 
accessing or swapping. Zeewolf should 
go on sale around June and although a 
price has yet to be fixed, it should cost 
about £30. Watch this space for more 
details. Asylum can be contacted on 
0225 428494. 




Sometimes the only way to move around your 
forces is by picking them up. 




Your helicopter comes under fire from an amphibi- 
ous tank. Time to launch those homing missiles. 



NAUGHTY BUT NICE 



f - ' "™ M' 



Kompart follow up the 
astounding success of The 
Settlers with a cutesy plat- 
form game from Danish 
programmers Interactivision. 
Naughty Ones features 
50 levels of puzzles, bad- 
dies and collectables spread 
over five themed worlds: 
Mad Mechanics, Crazy 
Clocks, Furious Fire, Red 
Russians and Evil Egypt. 

The aim of the game is 
to guide your little hero 
around each level, scoring 
as many points as possible. To keep things interesting, your character has all 
kinds of special abilities and there's a nifty two-player option which enables 
you and a pal to compete againsl each other on the same screen. Naughty 
Ones will be available in both standard and AGA versions from mid-March, 
price £25.99. UK distributors Kompart can be contacted on 0727 868005. 




World One of Naughty Ones Is full of all kinds of nastios 
Including flying robots and ball-hurling end-oMcvel meanies. 





A new flight sim, fluffy white clouds, Alien Sex 
Fiend, a man called Hollywood, and an artist 
from Judge Dredd... how does all of this come 
together? Tim Smith makes the connections. 




oy, oh boy are we about 
to be given a treat! We 
are about to be in receipt 
of an aerial combat out- 
ing that, if the previews are to be 
believed, will knock the spots of all- 
comers. Well you're in for a treat if 
you own an A 1200 or a CD*". 
We're talking about TFX (Tactical 
Fighter eXpehmenf\ from that epic 
combination of Ocean and Digital 
Image Design (DID). 

The specifications for TFX are 
stunning. Imagine loosing off a 
laser— guided missile and then being 
able to follow it on camera. Imagine 
being able to turn around in the 
cockpit of your virtual aircraft, I 
mean really turn your computerised 
head around. Imagine being able to 
fly through clouds that don't sud- 
denly turn into dull while pixelated 





Attention to detail promises to be one of 
the great strengths of TFX. 



TFX has a huge play area and some abso- 
lutely stunning graphics effects. 



sheets - TFX's clouds are fluffy and 
foggy. There is none of this jerky 
front screen to back screen to left 
screen switching that leaves you feel- 
ing jet lagged and depressed. 

It all sounds impressive, but 
we've all seen impressive games that 
don't cut the mustard when it comes 
to playability. So what of the game- 
play? According to DID's managing 
director, Martin Kenwright: "We've 
tried to combine the best elements of 
arcade-style action with realistic (air- 
craft) simulation". 

There's plenty of area in which 
to play as well. DID managed to 
write more than five per cent of the 
planet Earth (that's seven million 
square kilometres worth of Ordnance 
Survey maps and files) into the game 
to complement the 3D game engine. 






TFX has already been a big success on the PC, and if it takes full advantage of the 
Incredible capabilities of CD 32 and the A1200 It could do equally well on the Amiga. 



TFX has already been a big hit 
on the PC, where you'd need a lop 
of the range 486 to scratch the sur- 
face. The ability of CD 32 to convert 
the graphics on the fly, combined 
with its 32-bit processor, custom 
chips and AGA graphics could make 
TFX one of the Amiga's best games 
of the year. 

" We've tried to 
combine the best 
of arcade action 
with realistic flight 
simulation. * 

And Mr Kenwright makes bold 
claims for his baby and for the work 
that went into it: "It's like film produc- 
tion — people for graphics, people 
for sound, full-time coders, soon 
game credits will roll off like in a 
Lucasfilm movie." Sounds impressive, 
so let's hope that that TFX lives up to 
its promise. 

Not happy merely to ride with a 
terrestrial combat game, DID and 
partners Ocean, have also put their 




Everything about TFX sounds and looks brilliant, but the real test of how good a game 
it Is lies in the gameplay. And from what we've seen there's plenty of that. 



Inferno features 130 missions, and 
promises to be graphically gorgeous. 



backs into the mutated child of Epic. 
Called Inferno, this game uses the 
skills of graphic artists (and Judge 
Dredd monthly crayon-wielder) 
Shaun Philips and also features the 
strains of 80s goth-popsters, Alien 
Sex Fiend who provide the back- 
ground lunes. 

Although Inferno's genesis was 
as a sequel to the disappointing but 
nevertheless ambitious. Epic, it has 
grown up since then. Using the 3D 
graphics for which DID are so rightly 
renowned, it is the brainchild of the 
made-for-fame, Shaun Hollywood. 

Inferno features 1 30 missions 
based around your character, a pilot 
torn between the opposing powers 
of good and evil. According to 
Hollywood: "I wasn't trying to create 
a film-like game with Inferno - it just 
turned out that way". 

Once again, early glances at the 
sumptuous graphics provide a nice 
warm feeling at the base of the 
games-sensitive polyps that nest at 
the brain stem of most decent human 
beings, especially because the 
images (created with 3D Studio on 
the PC) should be enhanced and glo- 
rified by the technology of the CD^, 

Now all we have to hope for is 
that the people at Ocean and DID 
haven't concentrated so much on 
graphics and sound that they have 
forgotten that what really makes a 
great game is great gameplay. 

Keep your eyes out for the full 
ond informed reviews of TFX and 
Inferno in Amiga Format soon. 1?

What do you get. then? An Amiga CD 32 , a super 
Sony telly and a CD copy of both Zool 1 and 
Zool 2. that's what, you lucky thing! 






What 



Answer the following three questions, putting the letters to the 
correct answers on the back of a postcard or a sealed enve- 
lope, and Including your name and address and send rt to: 

Zool's Cool Comp. Amiga Format. 
Future Publishing. 30 Monmouth Street. 
Bath, Avon BA1 2BW. 



Plus: five Zool 2 T-shirts for runners-up 

remlin's super-fast, creatively- 
colourful mega-popular blasting 
platformer, Zool, has burst on to 
_ the scene as a new, improved 

version 2. And, if you hadn't noticed by now, we here at Amiga Formaf think 
it's not at all bad. In fact, in last month's issue it scored a massive Amiga 
Format Gold score of 93 per cent!

platform-loving person who wins this great competition. 

With more and more games out on CD format, Commodore's powerful 
games machine can give you endless hours of button-pressing fun. And it's no 
ordinary TV screen you will get to see Zool, Zoon, Krool and Zooz on - Sony's 
M-series TV has a 21 -inch tube, Hi Black Trinitron for improved contrast and 
reduced reflection, and an audio output of four watts! 

The questions are not hard, so get your entries in quick and you soon could 
have the coolest games-playing set-up in town. 



Entries must be In by 1 March 1994 

Iln Zool 2, Zool has a female companion to help him fight 
his way through various strange worlds In order to beat 
Mental Block. What Is she called? 
a) Zoom

receive a zany 
Zool 2 T-shirt. 



The Rules 




1. No employee of Future Publishing or Gremlin may enter. 
2. All entries must reach Amiga Format by 1 March 1994. 

3. The winner and runners up will be deckled by Amiga Format and the judge's 
decision Is final. 
4. No cash or alternative prizes can be offered. 











Paul Monaf visits RAF Honnington to find out 
what flying a Tornado is really like by taking a 
ride in an air force training simulator. 



Ilitude 200 feet, speed 600 knots, Terrain Hugging system onl 
Doesn't mean much, does it? Spend a day at RAF Honnington, 
home to 1 3 Tornados, and the words will slide off your tongue. 
For many hours I had sat at my Amiga playing at being pilot with 
Digital Integration's flight sim Tornado, but that was nothing - now I was in 
For the ride of my life. 

I was about to test the ultimate computer flight sim - the three million 
pound Tornado flight crew simulator. Before I was let loose on the hardware I 
spent over an hour in pre-flight training, kitted out in a flight suit, G suit, life 
vest and the rest of the gear. 

Flight Lieutenant Mike Smith was my instructor for the day and he immedi- 
ately strapped me into the Weapons Officer's seat. Now I know how Tom 
Cruise felt when he was about to go into battle in Top Gun\ As the two mon- 
strous engines wound up to full power, my senses dissolved and I was 
convinced that it was not a large box I was sitting in, but the cockpit of a real 
Tornado ready and waiting to take off. Fit Lt Smith released the breaks, the 
craft lurched forward, the tower gave us clearance and we had lift off! 

With the airframe vibrating, the simulator climbed to a cruising altitude of 
20 kilometres which felt no worse than a holiday flight only a bit more turbu- 
lent. Fit Lt Smith opened the throttles and swept back the wings which made 
the simulator judder. The mild turbulence grew into buffeting as the simulated 
speed approached supersonic, then reduced into a comforting rocking ride. 

Without warning, the simulator dropped out of supersonic mode and 
lurched left forcing me lighter into the ejection seat's harness - this would 
make an excellent fairground ride. Then it threw us to the right, dived, turned 
and climbed. With the cabin temperature rising and a bad taste in my oxygen 
mask, I clutched the sick bag close to my chest. I learnt later that all thai duck- 
ing and diving was the result of the pilot putting the simulator into a power 
dive to reach a ride height of 200 feet to utilise the Tornado's unique Terrain 
Hugging system and that if I had dared to open my eyes I would have seen 
some fantastic scenery generated by the simulator's visual system. 

Then I look my turn in the front chair. This baby is fast enough to out run a 
SAM I and was ready to use it! But I soon fell back to the ground with a bump 
when I stalled the simulator on lake off. Well, all I had to do was hi! 140 
knots, pull back on the stick, raise both flaps and the undercarriage, reach 
200 feet, engage autolhrottle and autopilot and I would then be flying! The 
problem was that every time I made what I thought was a slight input (pull 
back, push forward or from side-to-side) on the stick, the simulator would vio- 
lently jerk in the direction I was trying to point the nose and all hell would 
break loose. However, after adjusting my grip on the ultra-sensitive, but 
heavy, stick it was not long before the simulator was airborne 

Absolutely amazing. Imagine the best virtual reality game you have been 
on (those who haven't take my word - the experience is thousands of times 
,_ better than in your wildest dreams) and then some. With the Terrain Hugging 
system engaged, which allows the simulator to fly at 200 feet over every ter- 
rain, I ducked for cover as it rose and 
fell to follow the contours of the range 
of hills beneath. 

This was an experience my body 
will never let me forget, I left RAF 
Honnington wondering how Digital 
Integration's new Tornado flight— sim 
game would compare with the real 
(well real simulated) thing. Turn the 
page to find out...

Here we are in the Tornado cockpit trundling along on manual, and with no arms loaded. In fact we're not doing very much at al 
here, are we? Probably just taking the old crate to the garage to check the olt. water and tyre pressures. 



You can get 3D views of the various 
enemy planes and weapons. This one's a 
Frogfoot (strange name for a plane). 




Is Tornado a high flier, or is all the hype just pie in the sky? Does it take you on a flight of fancy 
or will you want to bail out? We've got the answers to your Tornado questions. 




here's AAA fire all round 
you, lighting ihe midnight 
sky like thousands of fire 
flies, you punch your air- 
speed up to compensate for the 
turbulence as your craft hugs the hill- 
side on fhe final approach lo your 
primary target. 

Your ground radar alerts you lo 
a SAM site! What do you do? You

I 



Originally written for fhe PC, 
Tornado comes packaged with an 
excellent 330-page manual (on the 
Amiga the Mission Planning section 
was scrapped which makes pages 
47 to 95 redundant, but they're still 
worth reading). 

The main option screen is split 
into three sections: Flight, Demo and 
Quick Start. Quick Start puts you on 
a live strike mission without much 
explanation of what to do, so if 
you're a beginner it's best to opt for

watch yourself flying along or even fly the plane from here. 



Flight, which allows you to set the 
preferences such as World Texture, 
Visual Range, Object Density and 
Cabin Features. 

The neat thing about Tornado is 
that it features a flight sim within a 
flight sim, click on this icon and it 
takes you to a Flight Simulator where 
you can begin lo hone your skills on 
a number of set tasks, from take-off, 
to bomb runs and flame outs. In fact 
everything you need to become a 
Tornado pilot is displayed in front of 




you, and where better to learn fhe 
plane's systems and memorise the 
1 60 or so keyboard commands? 

Flight training 

After bundles of time in the simulator, 
you should be ready to make the big 
leap to live flying on the training 
ground. There's not a whole heap of 
difference from fhe sim to live flying, 
except that you can crash and burn 
which will end your current flight log. 
A good way to avoid entering a new

HINTS AND TIPS 

DON'T be put off by the number of func- 
tions you are expected to carry out 
almost simultaneously, just follow the 
manual's Elementary Right Training 
section, and hit the Pause key. 

THE MANUAL carries some good check- 
lists (pages 294 and 295). but It's a 
good idea to make your own lists which 
makes for a much smoother game. 

ALWAYS make full use of the different 
autopilot settings because they will put 
you on the right tines. 



log is to select the cheat option from 
the menu. This will ignore any little 
mishaps you have like dying, but 
remember you are in control and it 
wasn't a SAM that got you - they're 
not active in training. 

In Flight Training you con also 
use the Explore mode to spy on your 
next target - better than any aerial 
recon the RAF's got. 

Ready for Combat 

The day will come when you are 
ready to go all the way. This time 
there is no cheating and those who 
have bigger machines will have the 
preferences set automatically. If you 
have been Slow Flying, now's the 
time you enter the real world. 

A600 owners will not notice a 
change in sim speed, but this does 
not detract from the gameplay. 
Clicking on the Combal icon opens 
another screen which displays 
Two-Player, Mission and Campaign 
options. Two-Player enables you to 
play a pal via direct link or a modem 
which makes for some heart-stop- 
ping head-to-head action. 

With the Mission option you can 
take part in a number of actions 
against the enemy's land and sky 
forces. There are two war zones with 
20 missions per zone. 

Finally, in Campaign you fly set 
war missions from a one plane strike 
to a combined six-Tornado deep 
strike which, when you're in enemy 
air space, gives them the chance to

show off their hardware. At this 
point you really need to leave the 
front seat, hit the Control key and the 
down arrow, and you'll be in the 
weapons officer's chair who also 
doubles as your navigator. 

With the Master Alarm buzzing, 
activate your Flight Plan Display dis- 
play, change your Multi-Function 
Display to the forward-looking cam- 
era, and try to locate your position 
on the navigational map. Do all this 
while the screen is jumping all over 
the place simulat- 
ing the turbulence 
from all that 
inbound flak, and 
try to pin point that 
AAA battery, not 
forgetting to 

release flares and chaff! Sounds 
tough. It is. 

Digital Integration makes no 
excuses for the number of key com- 
mands you have to remember, or for 
the fact that you have to jump from 
seat to seat - it certainly makes for 
some frantic gameplay 

Mission Map shows you a map 
of pre-set flight plans, and by open- 
ing the key icon you can highlight all 
the enemy forces around your flight 
poth. One nice touch is that by click- 



" Tornado make 
for some frantic 
and absorbing 

gameplay " 



ing on your object you can go into 
explore mode and see your target 
and the surrounding terrain 

There are two versions of the 
Tornado, the ADV (Air Defence 
Variety) which is much the same as 
its sister IDS (Intruder Strike Variety), 
but both play completely different 
roles. The Combat Air Patrol encoun- 
ters in both Mission and Campaign 
form are difficult to master and hav- 
ing restricting cockpit views and 
some unimaginative external views 

do not help mal- 
1 ters. Digital 




The Tornado mission map acts as a briefing section. From here you can check out 
what your opponents are up to and get weather updates and other information. 



Integration have 
certainly done 
their homework 
on Tornado, get- 
ting expert advice 
from the Tornado crews to make the 
package as realistic as possible. 
However, the game does have its 
faults. There is only one crash 
sequence, which is fine for belly 
landings but not for hitting the side 
of a hill at 600 knots. There is no 
replay mode, so more often than not 
you miss your bomb hitting its target- 
There are also so many key com- 
mands to remember that your often 
have to pause the game to look up 
that all-important action. 

To gel the best out of Tornado, 
Digital recommend you use an 
Al 200, A4000 or with an A500, 
that you have at least 1Mb of RAM 
and an accelerator. You will need it. 
Even on an A 1200, its slow frame 
rate renders ft almost unplayable. 
You really need at least an 030 pro- 
cessor to enjoy it fully. On an A600 
you can speed it up by setting the 
preferences to minimum, but it's still 
slower than an A 1200. 

As flight sims go, Tornado is out 
of this world. It is remarkably 
detailed but is aimed at the fully 
blown propeller heads, so if you find 
it hard-going at first, don't lose 
patience - the fun comes as your 
horizons are widened by the depth 
and realism of the program.

This is not just any old golf game, but is 
Ryder Cup AGA smooth enough to become 

king of the greens? Is it powerful, sophisti- 
cated and good-looking enough to outshoot its 
fellow swingers? Find out here... 




Just look at that stance. Keen students of the great game marvel at the sight ol a glo- 
rious backswing. At least we can laugh at Sam Torrence and his daft putting style. 




o you ever switch on the 
telly late ot night hoping 
for an educationally stim- 
ulating session with a 
foreign film, or some obscure video 
footage of James Brown, only to be 
met with the excruciating sight of a 
bunch of overdressed accountants 
batting a glorified gobstopper 
around vast tracts of private, green 
and verdant, land that could be bet- 
ter used as public parkage? 

Do you choke on your kebab as 
Fred Couples or Fuzzy Zoeller scoop 
another $350,000 for hitting the 
gobstopper with an anorexic hockey 



stick or ten? Do you find yourself, an 
hour later still watching it. and at 
every other shot saying: "Oh come 
on, I could do that! I'll suffer the 
shame of red and purple 
slacks, shoes that went out 
of fashion during Al 
Capone's IRS hearings, 
give me the money for hit 
ting the gobstopper! Give 
it to me!" Do you then go 
on to the local pitch 'n' putt 
and take 232 shots to gel round? 
Then you need an Amiga golf game 
And not just any Amiga golf game. 
You need this one 





Choice of club Is Important. Not even Frank and Marcus would select a sand wedge to 
try and knock a ball 300 yards down the fairway - unless their bag of beer was empty. 




Amiga games can be things of 
extreme delight. This normally hap- 
pens when programmers get 
together and say: "Let's try some- 
thing a bit, well, new. let's give 
the customer a few choices 
that they can take without 
having first to have 
obtained a degree in 
applied lateral thinking. 
Let's make this one a 
fun game". -• 

You're expecting me to say 
something clever now, something 
like: "Wouldn't it have been great if 
The Really Useful Software Company 
had done this?". Well, they have. 

Let's go all the way! 

We have a situation here that is 
akin to the situation in Amiga 
footy sims. There was a time when 
Kick Off ruled the roost. Then 
Sensible Soccer came along and we 
all looked at dear old KO and saw 
that il was dated - good, but dated. 

The situation with golf games 
has been that Electronic Arts' PGA 
Tour Golf took on all-comers and 
thrashed them in terms of playability. 
But now. Ocean's Ryder Cup has 
slipped into its red plus fours, dusted 
down its Ping irons, donned its 
stupid-looking sweater, addressed 
the ball and is set to take PGA all the 
way to the 1 8 th. 



The things it lacks are few, but 
irksome. You don't get to see your 
stats grow as you improve; the 
putting is not taxing enough, and the 
maps of the holes are too small and 
lock detail. 

What it has in its favour how- 



ever, is o 




bucket- 
load of style, 
options, graphics, 
playability and value. 

For a tee-off, there are three con- 
trol systems. Not three levels of play, 
but three separate and equally effec- 
tive methods by which to get the little 
white, pimply sphere from the tee 
into the hole. You can use power 




Few events can beat the excitement of the Ryder Cup. Remember Faldo s hole-in-one. Ryder Cup offers a variety of courses. The matches are played alternately between 
the poor Italian bloke who lost It', and all the player's lovely wives In nice outfits. courses In America and Europe. Funny how when rt's In Europe, It's always In Britain. 





And I thought btrdy was spelled birdie. Anyway, If you're under par, a ball In the hole Is 
worth a birdie on the board, but a ball In the bush Is more like a bogle on the green. 



and snap. You can use power, shot 
type and target; or you can use the 
wobbly sight over the ball that was 
premiered in Ocean's International 
Open Golf game (upon which Ryder 
is based). 

All three methods of control are 



ffective, a I 




Phew. It really is good is this 
game... 

Graphically it takes PGA's nine 
iron and does disgusting things with 
it in the rough. The landscapes and 
even the golfers themselves are 
drawn with elegance, style and 
enough subtlety to make you forget 
that it's two below zero, raining and 
your best friend has just run off with

audio atrocity on this superb gome is 
okin to slicking a suckered Mr 
Blobby doll on the side window of a 
Hispana Suiza. You should get it 
together, chaps. 

But what of the options? Lovely. 
You don't get the useless practice 
drive and practice green options that 
no one ever uses. You get straightfor-

your dog. The redraws just happen. 
Pingl And the you're there 
(which is more than you can 
say for the system-ravaging Links). 
The rough looks rough and the 
fairway looks... fair. OK, so the 
greens all look as if they've been 
built by Chris Bonnington in a partic- 
ularly sadistic mood, perched as 
they all seem to be on hilltops, but 
they are still playable. 

The sound sucks... 

The sound is poor. Belay that, the 
sound is shamefully dismal. Why the 
programmers think that we should be 
happy with 'Tweet tweet', 'Plop' and 
'Yah-hayl' is beyond me. Putting this

course. There's no choice of clubs 
but there is choice of team mates. 
This is the Ryder Cup of course, 
where golfers stop being walking 
money machines with as much 
charisma as a parliamentary under 
secretary for gloss recycling and 
become national heroes. 

You get to play in a glorious 
team, either European or that other 
lot from over the Atlantic. You play 
foursomes, fourbolls and singles, 
standing (virtually, of course) shour 
der-to-shoulder with greats such as 
Seve, Bernhard, Woosie or Mark 
James. You even get to edit out Mark 
James and type in your own name. 

This turns Ryder Cup into the 
Sensible Soccer of golf games. 
Before long you hear yourself inton- 
ing in a whisper (in case the 
Americans hear): "Come on Bernie 
son (Longer that is). Don't let us down 
lad, we only need to halve this one 
and we've got the buggers on the 
run." Or, more often than not: "Sorry 
Nick mate, hooking's been a prob- 
lem today, the old mouse finger's 
playing me up, still it's only the 1 2th". 

Great, smashing, super 

This is a fine, fine, fine game with 
more to offer than a government min- 
ister in a child support hearing. 
Options, style, payability and sport- 
ing tensions. Excellent. 

Tim Smith O 




No redraw hell, good player 
animation. But the maps are a 
tad too small. 



A shamefully poor offering with 
nothing to listen to except for 
tweets and plops. 



Eat! I don't have time to eat 
dammit, ifs the 17th hole and 
we're level. 

PLAYABILITY 



Just one more hole. Go on 
please, please. I've just got to. 
Pleeeeee easel 




** A game with 
something new to 
offer - bags of style, 
loads of playability 
and the chance to 
make Europe a 
great sporting unit 
every night for 
months. Gold writ- 
ten all over it.

MINE : 



It's funny, but every strategy 
game set in the future seems to 
have one thing in common. 
Some years before the action 
starts, there is always a Great War. 
These Great Wars always kill every- 
body bar the main protagonists, and 
blow away the galaxy. 

Maelstrom does not disappoint. 
Many years ago, there was a Great 
War - civilisation was given a 
severe pasting, and some bright race 
took it upon itself to create a huge 
empire by not entirely fair means. 

These chaps are called the 
Syndicate, and you are a fully paid 
up member until you decide you 
don't like seeing poor but happy 
people colonised and killed. 

Your last mission for the bad folk 
was to check out planet Harmony, 
but you defect and become 
Overlord. Your task is to protect 
Hormony and stop the Syndicate 
overunning the galaxy. 



Despite Harmony's vulnerability, 
there are huge resources to hand 
(you could even afford to sign 
Roberto Baggio, but he probably 
wouldn't be very good at war) so 
with careful research and develop- 
ment, and some bad-assed, 
no-nonsense violence you must set 
about re-balancing the powerbase in 
favour of the little guy. 

Get a grip on the galaxy 

Actually, it's a bit more complex 
than that. There is a huge cast of 
characters with a whole range of 
personalities and you've got to 
assign personnel to tasks best suited 
to them. To fund operations you must 
generate finance by selling Harmony 
products (the hairspray goes down a 
bomb) and mining. 

There are olso wider issues to be 
considered such as the Syndicate's 
grip on the rest of the galaxy. Phew. 
Got time for a nice cup of tea? 



Writer Syd Mead is not known 
for his cute platform affairs, and 
Maelstrom is one mothership of a 
game. Every decision you moke has 
a knock-on effect.and if you can't 
keep the folk back on Harmony, er, 
harmonious then you won't last long. 

The icons are simple enough to 
follow and Maelstrom is well set out. 
Bradley as Overlord didn't last too 
long on his first few attempts, but 
perseverence brings reward. The ani- 
mated sequences work well and 
those with o penchant for strategy 
should find plenty to go at in 
Maelstrom.

Could Simon the 
Sorcerer really be 
Britain's answer to 
the magnificent 
Monkey Island? Join 
our Magic Circle to 
find out... 



imon's a bit of a brat. 
Instead of being sent down 
McDonalds with a fiver on 
his 12th birthday, his mum 
makes him a lovely slap-up tea and 
hires a conjuror to stop the assem- 
bled guests flicking greenies at each 
other. It all goes amazingly well, 
until a sudden knock at the door 
changes the course of Simon's life . 

Simon the Sorcerer is a 
point-and-click graphic adventure 
set in a mythical land filled with 
strange creatures and even stranger 
goings-on. The knock on the door 
heralds the arrival of a scruffy mutt 
called Chippy whose magician mas- 
ter Calypso has mysteriously 
disappeared. As you set off 
in search of Calypso 
you also discover a 
dastardly plot by 
an evil wizard 
called Sordid '^^ 
who plans to W^ 

envelop the 
world in a shroud 
of darkness. 

Like most graphic 
adventures, Simon drops you into a 
massive game world and invites you 
to explore a series of 
exquisitely-drawn locations in 
search of the clues which can help 
solve the mystery. Your first set of 
clues arrive in a note from Calypso 




If you accept the swampling's rather kind offer of a tasty stew you will eventually get to pay a visit to Skull Island.

Here's Simon on his way to the Drunken 
Druid for a lunchtime pie and pint. 

a humorous way you don't really 
mind them being there. 

What's less forgivable, though, 
is the pace at which the action takes 
place. With such a massive game 
you expect periods of aimless wan- 
dering, but you soon discover that 
even simple conversations with char- 
acters involves sitting through a 
toilet-busting diarrhoea of words 
you can't escape from. This wouldn't 
be so bad if they had something 



zles. Some of ihe 

objects have such a 

small detection area you 

have to literally place the mouse 

pointer over every item on screen 

before you can find what you're 




looking for. Until you get used to this 
way of playing, you can find your- 
self wandering around the same old 
locations again and again without 
making any progress and the 
long-winded replies from the in- 
game characters can turn Simon into 
an intensely frustrating experience. 

Despite these shortcomings, 
there ore plenty of things to like 
about Simon the Sorcerer. 
Graphically, the game looks stun- 
ning. Animals run through the 
forests, birds whistle through the air 
and water shoots down waterfalls. 
Simon himself is particularly cutely 
animated with his flowing purple 
robe, lolloping gait and a penchant 
for taking out his Walkman if you 
leave him standing for too long. The 
vast number of complex puzzles and 
sheer physicol size of the game also 
means it's going to take you weeks, 
if not months, to complete. 
For AGA owners, 
things are a little 
less clear-cut. 
The differences 
rx between the 
standard and 
the enhanced 
versions are mini- 
mal and at £34.99 
for the standard game, 
Simon the Sorcerer is already an 
expensive proposilion.

irt off on a positive 
note for a change. The 
music is great. Very good. 
Without sounding too pre- 
tentiouyall right, it will, but what the 
hell), the in-game music veers 
between Tangerine Dream with the 
occasional burst of Stravinsky with 
bits of Psycho piled in for effect. And 
very moody it is too. 

Until you realise that the music 
bears no relevance to the situations 
you find yourself in during the game. 
Shame, what with all that CD stor- 
age space sitting there just gagging 
to be used. The other downside to 
this is that you can find yourself won- 



You can't always get what you want, as 
the Rolling Stones said in their rhythm 
and bines number about the Maze sec- 
tion of Labyrinth of ftmo.

Out now 



dering about a perfectly innocent 
mirror maze when the sound 
up to almost Jaws-like proportion! 
as you... ulp... turn a corner and... 
ulp, ulp... keep walking along a bit. 
It gives false clues and this interferes 
with the gameplay. ^^ 



Universal takeover 

Right, so what's the game about 
then? Quick rundown. You're on a 
subway station. You're wrenched 
info another world by Daedulus (the 
chap who created the maze that 
held the Minotaur). King Minos has 
forced him to build a trans-dimtf* 
sional and trans-temporal maze in 
order to take over the universe. 

For some unexplained reason, 
you ore the only person who can 
save civilisation as we know it. You 
ge* ?he picture? From now on you 




Labyrinth of 77me 
looks good. In 
fact it looks 
great, and 
nowhere more 
M than In the 
Mirror Maze sec- 
tion of the game. 



Entar.ce 



r.* 






When you reach the end of a railway 

Triage you find this. Most strange. 



The game has a bizarre quality. This is 
what you find In a hotel corridor. 

explore the maze, go to strange and 
diverse times and places, solve puz- 
zles and generally attempt to save 
the known universe... and so on and 
so forth. It's pure Americana, student 
Americana with cultural references 
being dropped in willy-nilly. 

So much for the plot, which I'm 
sure has been seen on Or Who or 
Star Trek or Twilight Zone or Sesame 
Street. Now for the control system. 




IN 



The Wild West section of Labyrinth of Time, In which you must solve puzzles and 
untangle webs of cryptic clues of a gun-sllnglng. cow-poking variety. 



aze. f -<cj *- : 



It's dated. You use a mouse and not 
the CD 32 controller. Hired Gi 
Dungeon Master and Eye of 
Beholder do it better. For example, 
you can't walk backwards in 
Labyrinth, and you can't turn on your 
heel. This gives the whole affair a 
rather dated and very jerky feel. 

You even get ancient Dungeon 
and Dragons messages such as 'you 
can't go that way' as if this was a 
text adventure. Sad really, that wit 
all the wonders that CD offers, we' 
still stuck wim this old hat. 



Clicking irritating 

There are even some annoying game 
inconsistencies such as being told 
that you have to open something (for 
example a mining cart) before you 
con continue. So you click on the 
Open icon, then click on the cart, 
and are then told "you can't open 
thatl". Very irritating. If there's one 
thing that can destroy an adventure 
game, it's this kind of inconsistent 
game planning. 

But let's finish on an up note. 
This game is incredible to look at. 
Fabulous. The programmers have 
^ent a great deal of time creating 
ray-traced images and backgrounds 
within which the game is played out. 

If you really want to impress your 
friends with the wonderful capabili- 
tie^of your brand-spanking new 
C™2, men g e , this game. Don't ask 
them to play it, though. 



Stunning ray-traced images will 
grace your screen, but they 
slow down the gameplay. 



T 



Wonderful in-game music is 
worth listening to on its own, 
but it does give false clues. 



Hard core adventurers will love 
this. If you're a normal human 
you won't bother. 

PLAYABILITY 



1717 



Too slow, and much too full of 
inconsistent details to be a 
must-buy CD 32 game. 




« Labyrinth of Tlmm 
Is a great-looking, 
superb-sounding, 
puzzle-filled game 
which will impress 
your mates. Until 
they realise that 
it's also too dated, 
too slow and far 
too clichtd. "

BABY TROLL 
K I DNAfc SHOCKER 




Nat :o rf^roTr.c s l o 






- - •* * ■— ^*****< v * .** ^ 



*•* . 



The Trolls' light red colouring and liking for 
cooked meat gave rise to one of their greatest 
philosophers coining the phrase: I'm pink 
therefore I'm spam." 






Pink, punk platform frolics abound as the 
Trolls entertain in this floppy-enhanced CD 
outing. And hey, do these little creatures 
have tremendous haircuts? Well yes, they do. There are seven lands to tackle packed with an interesting voriety of 
hazards thai you must avoid, and you can approach the levels in any order you like, which is quite unusual, 
although to finish the game all must be completed. The worlds include one entitled Media Land — very Nineties 
eh? Trolls is a feast of fast and frenetic fun all the way as you attempt to collect the little baby Trolls, balloons and 
various other special power-ups, including a rather interesting Beer pick-up which 
makes your movements rather unresponsive for a while. So Trolls is a platform game 
featuring funny looking fellows, great graphics, plenty of depth and it's also quite 
smart in the payability stakes. And check out the parallax scrolling - very impressive. 
A perfectly palatable platformer.

Buckle your swashes, grog some swig, doubloon your money and jolly off with 
Roger In the brigand battling adventure experience Pirates! Gold. 

Avast me hearties and hoist the mainsail. No, no, no. Yo ho ho and 
pieces of eight. Do leave off. A flagon of wenches and a pretty ale. Give 
up eh? Pirates! Gold is an enhanced version of the floppy release which 
got its first Amiga outing almost four years ago. It's a quite wonderful 
animated sequence set in an inn where some rum coves behave in a 
drunken manner. It's action and adventure as you jump in the boots of a 
17th Century buccaneer, sail the Seven Seas while plundering as much 
loot as possible Choose one of four nationalities (English, Dutch, 
Spanish and French), select a historical period and pick a special ability 
such as sword fighting or navigation. The gameplay is a mixture of joy- 
pad manoeuvring and decision-making with a bit of combat thrown in 
for good measure. You can also collect pieces of a treasure map which 
could lead you to some er, treasure, and 
there's a great selection of songs to choose 
from. Pirates! Gold is one of the easiest 
adventure games to get into and it's great 
fun, though some might find it a bit repetitive.

This Isn't eggsactly what 
I intended to do, but as 
cluck would have it, I 
managed to avoid the 
spikes. They said If I 
made any more chicken 
puns they'd hit me, but I 
told them to get stuffed 
(ouch, gerroff!). 




Good name is Alfred. There 
is The Great, the Roberts 
from ihe corner shop and 
the er, Chicken. Not content 
wilh inspiring the name of a 
political party at the last 
General Election, the 
Alfmeister clucks on to CD, 
wings proudly flapping and ready lo solve the world's problems. 
Apparently the Meka-Chickens have kidnapped (eggnapped, as omus- 
ingly told in the manual) William and his brothers as well as some bird 
called Floella and are intent on using them in cloning experiments. Thus, 
with feathers ruffled you (The Chicken) must put all your eggs in one bas- 
ket and flap off on a barnstorming, platforming rescue mission Alf's 
beak ensures you're well up the pecking order os you burst balloons, 
jump on baddies and collect the bonuses. 
The graphics are big, bright and bouncy 
although the sprite can be tricky to control 
and you don't get to do a great deal of inter- 
esting things. Rather dull platform fayre.

All oboord the SS 
Whale for a 24th 
Century adventure in 
space. You're in 
charge of crew 
orbiting around the 
planet Castra who 
haven't goto red 
cent to oil their giz- 
zard (never mind the cost of a can of GTX) So with no money or fuel, 
you have to beam down on to the planet to seek some readies. Whale's 
Voyage is a futuristic RPG with elements of exploration, trading and com- 
bat. You can either load preset characters or make up the personalities 
yourself, though ihe former is the easier option. Once you arrive on 
Castra, you find your way around the planet by using a built-in automap 
which comes in very handy The planet is not the friendliest place and 
muggings and other inconveniences are quite common. But if you help 
someone in trouble, you get a reward which can be saved in case you 
need a favour later on in the game, or you 
can swap it for cash. Whale's Voyage is a 
huge game and although initially it seems 
rather complicated and daunting, it's origi 
nal and playable.

Moan Arenas Is a crack- 
ng good game. BUT. it's 
basically Pacman, and 
the CO version Is exactly 
the same as the floppy 
disk game, but costs 
more. Is this really the 
way forward for CD 32 ? 




No-one watches Big Break 
in 2093 That's because the 
programme isn't going then 
and Jim and John are no 
longer with us So everyone 
tunes in to Mean Arenas - a 
21 st Century televised 
Pacman, where contestants 
compete for big cash prizes but failure brings the ultimate sacrifice - no, 
not a ceramic Bully, but death. This is as straight a port from floppy as 
you can get - even the disk accessing appears on the screen. Now this is 
no! the most sophisticated of fayre for the great machine that is CD***; 
the graphics are at best basic and the samples poor but Mean Arenas 
has one great quality - playability. It's darn good fun as you take on Ihe 
role of contestant and career around collecting weapons, keys and most 
importantly, gold tokens. In all, there are four types of arena and some 
have up to eight floors, so it does gel incredi- 
bly difficult later on in the game. There are 
no enhancements to ihe floppy yel the CD 
version is a quid more than the originol - but 
heck, it's still great fun

Interplay ■ £29.99 ■ Out now 

Do you sometimes wish you had been an 
administrator, politician and great leader 
700 years ago? If the answer is yes then 
Castles 2 should be right up your street. 

You choose to take on the role of one of 
five feuding families with the ultimate aim 
being to convince the Pope that you're the 
right candidate to be crowned King. In the 
meantime, to gain this blessing, you must 
overrun as much territory as possible in time

four rivals are equally keen to get the nod 
from the religious bloke and do their best to 
prevent you completing your task. 

So, recruit yourself an army and off you 
jolly well go. Beware who you choose to 

invade though, because if you ore on the Pope's patch he'll be on the 
phone to his mates before you can say "women priests" Castles 2 is not

sweep through Central Europe and maybe 
cut a swathe through the Iberian Peninsula. 

amount of tasks that you can do at one 
time and this can become a wee bit frus- 
trating. Another thing that I found 
annoying is that the control system is 
somewhat fiddly. Despite these gripes 
Castles 2 is 
a decent 



strategy game, particularly for the more experi- 
enced RPG'er. And cheers to Interplay for 
the quickest of role-playing games due to the fact that you are limited in the knocking a fiver off the floppy version

FROM THE MAKERS 




Everything you need to start programming in C 

Beginners book on learning to 
program in C 

PLUS the fully-registered version 
of DICE, the leading shareware C 
compiler 

PLUS on-disk reference and DICE 
documentation 

PLUS all necessary Commodore 
'includes' 

A sample edition of this book is given 
away free with the January issue of 
Amiga Shopper - check it out! 




C is the programming lan- 
guage of the professionals. 
Indeed, much of the Amiga's 
operating system was written 
in C. And C variants exist for 
all major computing platforms 
- once you've learnt C on the 
Amiga you'll be able to pro- 
gram any leading machine. 

Our aim with Complete Amiga 
C was not just to produce a 
book explaining C for begin- 
ners. We wanted to provide 



EVERYTHING you need. Which 
is why we sought out the best 
shareware C compiler avail- 
able - DICE - and secured a 
deal on the full, registered ver- 
sion. We also negotiated with 
Commodore to provide all the 
special C libraries and 
includes needed to program 
the Amiga properly. 

In short, everything you need 
to program your Amiga In C is 
right here!

OBLINS 3 





uzzle adven- . 
fures like 
Goblins should 
carry a written 
warning saying: "Not suitable for 
those who suffer from impatience, or 
who are used to fast-moving plat- 
formers or shoot-em-ups". 

Not surprisingly, Goblins 3 fol- 
lows on from versions one and two 
and continues in a similar vein - you 
know big kingdom, evil characters 
casting spells on the king or kidnap- 
ping ihe princess, you saving 
everyone from everything. 

This time there are two kingdoms 
to contend with and their rulers are 
racing each other to be the first to 
conquer a labyrinth which, as leg- 
end has it, will give them eternal 
well-being for their people. 

However, things are not as sim- 
ple as all that - the guardian of the 
labyrinth has just died, the key to the 
labyrinth's entrance has disap- 
peared, as has the guardian's 
daughter and successor, Wynnona. 

You start off as Blount, a journal- 
ist of ihe local newspaper, who has 
set his sights on scooping the story 
for whoever makes it through the 
labyrinth first. And so the adven- 
ture begins. 

To travel through the different 
worlds, you have to complete the 
challenge each one presents. 



Sometimes you've got to 
kill, sometimes blow up 
buildings, or other times sim- 
ply chase different-coloured 
wispy things around. 

But whatever you've got to do 
you can be sure that it's not going to 
be simple. For example, to make a 
stick of dynamite you have to first 
find a tube, then the ingredients to 
make it explosive, then put them into 
the tube in the right order, then 
ignite it and finally make sure you 
click on your target quickly enough 
or you'll end up with singed eye- 
brows. But that's all the fun of the 
game - fun, that is, providing you've 
got the temperament to cope with it! 

Finger-clickin' good 

There are some very cute touches 
with extra characters such as a par- 
rot and a boa-constrictor in some 
scenes which you can select and 
move. Using them in combination 
with the main character's moves is 
tricky, but with good timing can 
mean you move on quickly through 

the challenge. 



.L«-.U 



/< 



.akes three easy steps 
her own Incendiary devie 




Just In case you're not sure what you're 
up to the options menu shows you all. 

What's also enjoyable is that 
you don't stay as the same old bor- 
ing Blount When he's rescuing 
Wynnona, he fiercely fights a wolf 
who not only leaves him for dead, 
but also leaves him with a tendency 
to grow huge amounts of bodily hair, 
pointy ears and teeth and do a fair 
bit of howling when he comes into 
contact with the full moon's rays. 

And while Blount is lying around 
recovering, you - this time as 
Wynnona - continue working your 
way through the scenes to find your 
way to the two rulers' castles. 
Goblins 3 is a big challenge and will 
keep you playing for weeks at a 
time. The scenes ore full of variety 
and interesting puzzles. 

The gameplay is only let down 
when it is sometimes difficult to com- 
plete a combination of actions 
quickly enough - put some dust 
down someone's collar and while 
he's sneezing, try to get a club from 
your inventory to hit him over the 
head with. It's not that it's impossi- 
ble, it's just frustrating when you're 
frantically clicking away and nothing 
seems to happen. If you're a particu- 
lar fan of puzzlers, then Goblins 3 
will not disappoint. 

Julie Tolley O 

You can't Just abandon ship - to get off this 
vesset you've got to get the right objects 
and use them In all the right places.

PLAYABILITY 



If s an easy game to follow, but 
making some of the moves can 
be tricky.

time— consuming 
puzzlers. **

eehng strange and 
wonderful people 
from other lands and 
knocking seven 
shades of stuffing out of them has 
become a very popular pastime, and 
joining the bond of beat-em-ups. 
such as Street Fighter 2 and Mortal 
Kombat is this bout of carnage. 
Dangerous Streets. It uses almost 
exactly the same formula as the 
other games - you pick one of the 
eight fighters and opt for either a 
straight one-on-one with an Amiga 
or human-controlled opponent, or 
go for the tournament, where you 
get to fight your way through the 
whole bunch of nutter*. 

The characters are a funny lot, 
including a lorry driver, a palmist 
and a disc jockey Each has a range 
of special moves, some of which are

CD VERSION 

For a further Investment of £4 you can 
get Dangerous Streets on a Compact 
Disc for your brand new CD 32 . It also 
comes bundled with the new CD 32 
pack. You get a much better sound- 
track which can be played alongside 
the sound effects. That's It. no extra 
characters, backgrounds, graphics or 
flash Intro sequence or anything. Since 
the CD version costs less to produce 

the three floppy disk version It's a 
little cheeky to charge another £4. 




The graphics are colourful, the 
sprites are a decent size and they 
have a cartoony look, although they 
do seem a little amateurish There 
are a good few fighting moves but 
not many frames of animation, mak- 
ing the moves very jerky The 
backgrounds ore lush with some 
snappy parallax scrolling and loads 
of colours but the sound effects are 
a bit wimpy, so it's o better idea 
to go for the music option. 
The action is cer- 
tainly fast, there are 
three speed settings 
and on the quick- 
est one the 
characters leap 
about like 
demented souls. 
To get a good hit 
you need to be at 
just the 'ight distance 
for the attack, so you 
tend to spend a lot of time 
Railing around trying to get the 
impact point of a blow over the 
opponent's head 





The mass of moves and the high speed 
makes seeing exactly what's going on 
and planning attacks tricky at first. 




The two Jokes under consideration for the 
caption to this picture involve dancing 
and knee-klsslng. Take your pick. 



Your character movos completely off the 
screen and your opponent Is left whack- 
ing away at thin air - lax design. 

Dangerous Streets has a few 
exasperating features, such as the 
controls for the fighters being differ- 
ent - push up on the joystick and 
one character will jump and another 
will kick. You can also move com- 
pletely off the screen which is a bit 
poor, but the special moves are 
imaginative, and the whole game 
has a light-heorted feel to it. There's 
none of the gritty reality of punching 
people in the kidneys here 

The truth of the matter is that 
Dangerous Streets won't keep 
beot-em-up fans happy as long as 
they've got gomes like Body Blows 
Galactic and Mortal Kombat. It's 
wacky and weird but ultimately fails 
to really grab the imagination.

ub and Bob. Zool, Soccer 
Kid and James Pond all 
have one thing in com- 
mon. They're endearing 
characters in platform games. Not 
that empathy is the most important 
element in a computer gome, but if 
you can identify in some way with 
your pixelated pal then the chances 
are, you'll want to keep playing. 
Step forward Snapperazzi, a 
platform game about an alien news 
photographer from the planet Dirt 
whose ambition is to work for The 
Sun. To get his certificate in photo- 
graphic dirty work, Snazzi must 
snap his way through seven worlds 
as well as a host of iub-levels. 

Snazzi is deliberately portrayed 
as a baddie and indeed, he is a hor- 
rible little chap sporting an inane 
grin, a trilby and o flashing camera. 



SNAPP 

No-one in the Amiga Formal 
office likes the character Snazzi. This 
is not a good start. If you look at a 
character and say "Uuuurggh", it's 
generally the case that you won't be 
clutching that joystick for long. That 
is, unless the gameplay is totally bril- 
liant, and incredibly exciting. Ahem. 

Not only are The Sun involved in 
Snapperazzi, there's a pizza com- 
pany involved as well as a brand of 
fizzy sweets and ihey have their own 
levels. I'm not against the idea of 
sponsorship and brand tie-ins but 
when they are splashed across the 
screen of an average-to-poor plat- 
form game then... actually, they're a 
pleasant distraction from the mun- 
daniry of the game. 




You see, Snapperazzi is rather 
similar throughout. Sure, the levels 
are huge and there are 1 4 
sub-games, but the worlds all look 
and feel very similar, and there are 
very few intricacies to the gameplay. 
You bowl along, collecting rolls of 
film and snapping celebrities for 
cash, while avoiding Page Three 
girls shops. Yes, the shops, because 
old Snazzi is a shopaholic. 

Snapperazzi is bright and 
colourful but this doesn't disguise the 
fact that the graphics are rather dull. 
There are a few good sound effects, 
but overall it's all indescribably 
tacky. Snapperazzi just doesn't hit 
the mark.

War is hell. Lots of 
running about, 
shouling and bang- 
ing - very vulgar, 
not to say dangerous. Playing war 
games seems like a more sensible 
idea. Campaign II is the sequel to 
the original Campaign, but instead 
of being set in WW2 it covers post 
war confrontations. Opening the 
large box reveals why it's so

correct, do we care? 



heavy. There is a book of photos 
and a thick book detailing all the 
vehicles and helicopters used in the 
game, the manual itself is a reason- 
able size and an easy read, phew! 
Campaign II pits the blue force 
against the red one in a 
series of wars ranging 
from the Korean to the 
Gulf. It's a strange mix 
of 3D action and a full- 
blown strategy affair. 
You can 




stick at being the general and mov- 
ing markers around on the map. 

The initial reaction to the mass of 
icons and maps is to start panicking. 
But a quick read of the mercifully 
good manual should have you up 
and running quickly. Right clicking 
on any of the icons brings up a text 
box to tell you what the icon does. 
Every game with lots of icons should 
have this feature, it saves a lot of ref- 
erences to the manual. 

There are 1 4 training maps on 
which to hone your skills before you 
embark on the six maps representing 
real wars: Korea, The Six Day War, 
Yom Kippur, Vietnam, Iran-Iraq and 
the Kuwait punch-up. 

These are huge efforts with 
dozens of units to command. The 
action starts at the campaign map 
where you direct the units which vary 
from a platoon to a full army. Along 
with the mix of tanks, you have 
attack helicopters, artillery, homing 
missiles and motorised infantry to 
play with -152 vehicles in all. 

When two opposing units 
come within fighting

the battle map where up to 16 vehi- 
cles from each side battle it out. You 
can toke command of a platoon 
leader and enter the 3D section, or 
you can command things from the 
battle map. If it takes your fancy you 
can miss out the battles and opt for 
your Amiga to figure out the results 
while you stick to strategic operations. 
This is often the best option because 
the Amiga plays your hand well. 

Sound and vision 

The 3D graphics are not bad at all, 
each tank is instantly recognisable 
and there is lots of detail to the trees 
and buildings. You can adjust the 
level of 3D detail to help speed 
things up, which it needs. 

On an A600 things move slowly 
and jerkily, on an A4000 it's almost 
too fast to ploy properly as tanks 
zoom around like sports cars. The 
sound is initially interesting with 
clanks, explosions, electric motors 
and machine guns, but after half an 
hour it becomes a tad monotonous. 

The sound suffers from running 
on slower machines, on an A4000 
it's a constant barrage of samples, 
but on an A600 it's intermittent and 
annoying because the engine noise 
stops and starts as each frame is 
updated. It's pity you can't adjust the 
sound effects as you can the graph- 
ics. At least you can turn them off. 

In the 3D battles the vehicles and 
helicopters are controlled by key-

board or in combination with a joy- 
stick. The keyboard is best once you 
have learned the commands. You 
have individual control of tank tracks, 
turrets including gun elevation and 
all weapon systems. You view your 
chap from above and behind, which 
can make accurate aiming difficult. 
The turrets move independently and 
you can lock the view to follow the 
turret instead of the hull. It's easy to 
play but difficult to do well, If you get 
stuck behind an obstacle that you 
can't see, you have to back away 
until you can see it and go round it. 
The artificial intelligence used in 
the 3D sections is slightly dodgy 



Platoons of tanks run into each other 
and get stuck, and units make what 
seem to be suicidal attacks. You 
need to keep a tight reign on your 
units because they are keen on 
exposing their flanks to enemy tanks! 

A game of two halves 

The two halves of Campaign II sit 
uncomfortably together. The strategy 
game is eminently playable and 
respectably realistic, if over simple in 
parts. You can opt to play the whole 
game in this mode if you are a more 
serious wargamer. The 3D section is 
good fun, bul it detracts from the 
realism of the rest of the game. The 



battles are 

fought at an 

unrealistically 

close range 

between units 

with some weird things going on. 

The two don't quite go together. 

The game sets itself a large target 
of simulating wars over a 50-year 
period from army level down to con- 
trolling individual tanks. Winning the 
battles lakes practice and skill, espe- 
cially if you are out-numbered or 
out-gunned. It's not a game you can 
master quickly, although a quick 
burst of 3D tank battle is fun. 

The game proper is for dedi- 
cated wargamers, who will love it 
and no doubt pick holes in it at the 
same time. If you see the battles as 
more representational rather than 
stunningly accurate, it helps. 
Campaign II deserves to collect a 
series of dedicated followers. It's a 
brave effort which aims for excel- 
lence but doesn't make it past good.

The 3D view of the battlefield. You can take direct control

of actually gauging the game-

the Klingons and the security 
guy in the landing party who 
you Just know is fodder for 
Romulan hardware. 

The whole thing is hung 
together in an episodic mail- _,

Kirk and Spock finishing each

and photon torpedoes. There ■ 
are Sensors, warp factors,

trol of a randomly wobbling

the burton when the pointer is 
roughly in the area of the tre- *

controlling Kirk and co feels. 
• Star Trik should be a i 
seamless control interface - 
with useful icons, point and 
click action and all the fun of 
the' series combining to make . 
it a game you want to own. 
Instead, the whole lot con- • 
spires to make this package 
desirable only to hardcore 
Trekkies who aren't that con- 
+cwned with gameplay but 
who want to add the packag- 
ing to their collections. But we * 
can't really leave rrthere. This 
is more than a game, if s also * 
another piece of memorabilia. 

it's a phas#r life \ 

But what of the plots and sub- 
plots? It must be said that, i 
while the programmers were 
failing dismally m their tasks, 
the storymakers were apply- 
ing themselves with excellent 
attention to detail and a good . 
sense of puzzle making. There 
is more to this than rushing 
around the place blasting 
things with phaser*. There's a 
trial scene, there are elements 
of diplomacy, there are also a 
few moral judgements to call. 

OK, so you could play the 
game with phaser blasting 
and pig-headedness but you 
won't gain the approbation of 
Star Fleet Command. And 
what does approbation 
make*/ All together now... 
points! And what do points 
make? Points make... erm... a 
good feeling about yourself. • 

So, it you're a Trekkie who 
has a compulsion to keep 
your collection of everything 
ever that has Sfar Trek written 
on it, you'll probably want . 
this game (you'll probably « 
want this review in that 
easel). But tf you're someone 
who wants to ploy an Amiga 
game, I wouldn't bother.

Ireody available in

sions/ Oscar looks 
I set to battle the 
baddies - and the critics - one 
more time with this standard 
Amiga incarnation. 

Based on the highly-suc- 
cessful Trolls game engine, 
Oscar AOA was a severe dis- 
appointment. Flair's graphic 
artists obviously went berserk 
with the paint palettes and 
dressed what was a 




TLi 




rt* 




former in the kind of 
dayglo clothes last 
seen at hippie gigs 
on Three Mile Island. 

This is better. With 
the colour scheme lim- 
ited to 32 colours, Oscar 
emerges from the psychedelic 
murk with its plotforming cre- 
dentials intact. There are 
seven themed worlds to 
explore, each with three levels 
of movie-related mayhem. 

The aim of the game is to 
collect a certain number of 
Oscar statuettes on each level 
before moving on to the next. 
To help you, Oscar has a 
yo-yo for certain sections 
which he can use to break 
down walls or swing across 
chasms and there are the 
usual bonuses and baddies to 
deal with on the way. 



By far the 

most garish level In the AOA ver- 
sion, Game Show World benefits 
considerably from this more low-key and 
restrained approach. 

Oscar is by no means up to 
Zoo/ 2's extremely high 
■w standards - there are 



simply too many 
flaws, such as dodgy 

(edge detection for 
that - but this stan- 
dard version marks 
a distinct improve- 
ment over its more 
colourful cousin. Less is 
more, as they say.

All arms and legs and... just 

a minute, this bloke's a spot 

No-one likes zits. Pimples 
are just not cool How do I know • 
because I've seen that advert about 
the bloke who goes to see his mates 
in the pizza restaurant offer using 
some acne cream that allegedly 
works and suddenly he's a hand- 
some hero. And before that they had 
been calling him 'pizza face' or 
some such cruel jibe. Anyway, 
that's not important right now. 

Cool Spot has got some- 
thing to do with promoting 
fizzy drinks - apparently he 
comes cheaper than Michael 
Jackson. Seems that Virgin like 
their platformers to tie in with 
something. Remember Global 

Gladiators and those tasty ham- ^ Q< *±° w "^^ 
burgers? But more of that later.

Bounce your way around the seaside locations taking out the baddies and collecting 
red spots and release the captive spot from the cage. That's Cool Spot for you. 








The Intrepid Cool Spot leaps down from a 
dangly bit of rope... 

trouble otherwise there would be no 
point to the whole affair. A wily 
Wild Wicked Willy Will chap has 
kidnapped Cool's mates (also spots) 
and his task is to free them in time 
for tea with the King at the big castle 
on the hill. Or something like that 
Armed with only a constant sup- 
ply of gassy bubbles to 
chuck at the baddies, our 
Ray-Ban sporting hero sets 
out on a crazy adventure 
to the sound of the surf- 
mungous Wipeout tune. 

Cool Spot has been 
converted from the MegaDrive 
version, in the process losing a 
few colours and a bit of screen 
speed although Cool himself is 
slightly more pacy. The sprite is 
incredibly er, spritely 

The idea is to collect as 
many red spots throughout 
each level and free the 
trapped spot from the cage 
at the end. Collect a certain 
number of the circular red 
things and you qualify for a 
Bonus level against the clock.

torrent of gassy bub-

similar in feel (if not 
looks) to Global 
Gladiators which is not 
surprising because the same 
programmers were involved in 
both projects. Both have the 
same sort of general feel, 
movement, sound effects and 
slightly jerky scrolling which

Gladiators. But it 
* never bothered 
me, and even 
though Cool Spot 
adds nothing 
new or original to 
the platform genre, it's 
still fun. And that's what platformers 




And here we see the cool yet spotty one 
collecting his bonuses. 

are meant to be, isn't it? Cool Spot is 
an endearing character, full of little 
quirks, and it's quite good fun to 
jump and bounce around collecting 
spots and pick-ups, diving between 
balloons, shooting crabs and flies 
and other beasties. And that's it - 
there's nothing much else to write 
home about. 

The control of the sprite is occa- 
sionally annoying, particularly when 
you are attempting to fire your bub- 
bles at diagonal angles and 
sometimes when you move back- 
wards and forwards quickly the 
scrolling looks bonkers. 

But, gripes aside, and Cool Spot 
is by no means perfect, this is solid if 
unspectacular platform fun, over- 
priced a by few quid. 

Stephen Bradley d> 




WEEDS 1 MEG 



Cool Spot himself is the best ele- 
ment in the gome - o superbly 
animated sprite. 



Plenty of squeals and squeaks 
and some reasonably decent 
bocking tracks. 

ADDICTION 



It can get a bit repetitive and at 
times rather frustrating, but 
there's plenty to do. 

PLAYABILITY 



Not quite a top brocket plat- 
former, but Cool Spot is still 
quite a gas. 



VERDICT 



** Cool Spot is a 
bright and breezy 
platform romp by 
the seaside which, 
given a bit more 
care and attention 
to detail, could 
have been rather 
better than it 
actually is. **

PC GAMER 

Smarter than the average

SILLY PUTTY 

GBH ■ £9.99 ■ Reviewed (as Putty) AF40 95% 



STRIKER 

GBH ■ £9.99 ■ Reviewed AF36 93% 



. . ■ Silly Putty. Ideal for glaziers with 

^■1 a sense of humour, and people 

I who like playing platform games 

I featuring a blue blobby thing. 

•4 




this game has changed its 

name from Putty to Silly 

Putty. No matter, it looks 

the same to me, only it's a 

darn sight cheaper. Evil blokes are taking lots of baby putties from the planet 

Zid and turning them into super gum. Billy Putty (should that be Silly Billy 

Putty?) must save the day with a virtuoso performance of platform wizardry. 

Puffy looks superb, from the animated sprites, to the colourful backgrounds 

and smooth-scrolling screens. Billy can stretch into some positively unhealthy 

positions as he bounces through six levels. Along the way there are loads of 

performance-enhancing drugs, sorry pick-ups, to 

collect. Great bangs, pops and whistle effects 

combined with bubblygumtastic gameplay make 

Silly Putty ideal choice for glaziers, and people 

who like great platform games. 

POWERMONGER 

Hit Squad ■ £ 1 4.99 ■ Reviewed AF) 8 94% 

With 195 lands to conquer, 
Powermonger is much more than 
Just a skirmish. More of a very big 
battle really. 



9/1 




Early in the year folk tend 
to think about their future. 
Ruling the world is per- 
haps a tad ambitious for 
many but hey, we all have our dreams. Step forward PowerMonger, where 
you can rule the planet while having a nice cup of tea. There are 1 95 lands 
to conquer (phew!), with a band of men in each and you control the captain's 
actions. The lands consist of towns with armies and peasants and you must 
stroll in, bold as you like, and take them over. Graphically, PowerMonger is 
excellent and the interactive elements enable all 
kinds of scenarios. Also included in this package 
is the World Warl edition with 1 75 territories to 
conquer. Both versions have two-player options 
using a modem. A good God game. 



8/1 



Experience the euphoria or the 

dismay that Is winning and losing 

at football with the budget-priced 

re-released footle game Striker. 




Not a conversion of the infamous head- 
banging football game played by 
children of the Seventies, but a top-of- 
the-league isometric-view football sim. 
A totol of 64 international teams are included (no black players unfortunately) 
and seeded so you might just find the Germans a tad quicker to the ball than 
the Costa Ricans or the Zimbabwe team. This game is fast. Seriously fast. At 
first the ball flies back and forth like a tennis ball, but when you start to 
develop a few skills and a bit of tactical nouse, the game improves as a spec- 
tacle. But who cares about spectacles when 

there's goals to be scored. Striker is a serious 
alternative for anybody who is beginning to get 
fed-up with Sensible Soccer and now it's under a 
tenner, what are you waiting for? 

SPEEDBALL 2

guile and dishonesty.

Good month for re- 
releases this, and for 
re-release reviewers who 
get to play loads of fab 
games like this (and only have to write a leisurely couple of hundred words to 
boot). Anyway, Speedball 2 is an Amiga classic. It's a futuristic and violent 
American Football-style sport where you get to manage the team called Brutal 
Deluxe, and must do your level best to win all manner of trophies. The action 
takes place in a walled arena where there are various ways of scoring points 
including goals (no?), bounce domes, stars and a score multiplier. But forget 
the management options, the transfer market and 
the training gym - all you need here is a mate, a 
good few beers (if you're old enough of course) 
and a bad attitude. As Mike says: "Just do it". 
Absolutely tremendous.

would barely 


seem capable of fin-

Two games here with o four-player board game and a more traditional man-

surprisingly, the running of an associa- 



A beat-em-up's beat-em— up some 
might suggest, the famous Streetfighter

months after its first Amiga outing. 
Fighting plays a premier role in this as 
you choose one of eight characters, 
each with their own special moves 
and attempt to do over the rest in turn. 

The seven skill levels add to the 
longevity of the game in a genre not 
generally noted for its lasting interest. 
The sprites are large and superbly ani- 
mated and in two-player mode, the 
range of styles and techniques will 
have you waggling that stick for hours.

Not, as the name suggests, 
a cute and bouncy platform 
affair but a full-blown mon- 
ster and dungeon adventure game set in mystical lands inhabited by 
curiously-named characters such as Estoroth. A number of bad things have 
gone on in faraway lands and you've got to lead a four-man party to defeat 
Estoroth in his own dungeon. Each member of the team has their own particu- 
lar skill such as scrapping or magic to help you in your daring adventure. 
Visually, Black Crypt is fine and dandy and the characters and backdrops are 
well-drawn. On the down side the puzzles aren't particularly difficult to solve 
and the sound effects aren't really up to much, which distracts from the 
games atmosphere. Black Crypt is a perfectly ade- 
quate and competent role playing game, although 
the lack of depth and innovation could be some- 
thing of a turn-off for the more experienced role 
playing adventurers.

Travel through space meeting new races and 
destroying them In Space Crusade. 

Why, oh why, must these cru- 
sades always take place in 
dungeons or space? What 
about Hemel Hempstead 
Crusade, where you could role- 
ploy through shoplifting and 
other townie scenarios. 
Anyway, space it is and there 
are over 20 non-shoplifting mis- 
sions to complete, with the main 
objective being the elimination 
of some poor aliens. The screen 
uses an isometric 3D view when the violent action takes place and the rest of 
the time, you point and click on the icons to con- 
trol the team. Space Crusade falls between two 
stalls. It is neither an alien-bashing action game, 
nor a patient, thoughtful war game and ultimately 
it's a frustrating exercise. Suitable for novices.

Hi, 

Did you have an absolutely amazing Christmas and did Santa bnng you everything you hoped for? I certainly hope so. 
Well folks, it's not easy writing the Indi Column 2 weeks before Christmas to meet deadlines for the January Magazines but here goes. 
Al the time of writing there seems little doubt that the Amiga Desktop Dynamite pack has been a major success story with Sales exceeding every predic- 
tion, well done lo David Pleasance and his team at Commodore. 

Without a doubt the big news has been Commodores decision to add two extra titles to the CD32 Bundle making 4 in total (5 if you buy from Indi). 
This week Indi have formally announced iheSXI Expansion module for ihe CD32 allowing the addition of a keyboard and other peripherals. The impli- 
cations of this are very important for both existing Amiga owners and potential CD32 buyers. 

Il is now a real alternative to buy a CD32, add an expansion module and keyboard and effectively own an Amiga 1 200 with a CD drive rather than the 
I tentative of buying an Amiga 1 200 and then adding the CD32. Dcvelopements arc moving very quickly in this area. I will keep you up to dale with 
more information next month.

Panasonic 



Quiet Priitin, 





We researched the colour printer market at great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful output, yet at an affordable price.. 

We found the perfect printer in the and KX - P2 1 23 quiet printer. 

We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with It. We found that too. with 'Wordworth' yet 

at a retail price of L \ 29.99 we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchase! So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of 'Wordworth' free with 

every Panasonic printer. Of course your might be the fortunate owner of a Desktop Dynamite Pack or maybe the idea of word processing isn't for you. Once again Indi have the 

solution with the alternative of two great games. How's that for added value?

Your ship will automatically target the enemy, so all you have to do is

BOB'S BAD DAY

Last month we published the first 50 level codes for that curious platform

Well done Bob, it's gives us all a warm glow when we see that some peo-

Go to town for more supplies. 




Ishar 2 (bless you) can be a maze of passages, cul-de-sacs, hidden tunnels and rooms containing 
magicians and Inverting gorgons. What you need is an A to Z. Failing that here's some tips. 



STAGE 14: 
OLBAR'S ISLAND 

Fight ogainst the Fire Elemental by 
putting the magic shield on one of 
the characters, then activate the fire- 
protection spell. Approach the 
Elemental and strike. 

At the first crossroads turn right 
and travel right round the block, then 
take the access open to the north. 
Next crossroads: go to the west (not 
essential), enter the maze with fights 
against ores. Pick up arms and trea- 
sures to the north. Fight with dragon. 
To kill the dragon use the same prin- 
ciple as Fire Elemental - the 
protection spell must always be vali- 
dated or you've had it. Use the 
healing spell as often as necessary. 



The dragon is so more-ish, you can 
have several goes at killing it. 
Continue north. Pick up treasures in 
the crannies. 

At the next crossroads go north 
to the secret passage in the north 
wall. Continue, fight against wizard 
and skeletons. At the end of the 
maze with invisible walls, activate 
handle. Return to the crossroads. Go 
down to the south. Beware, slalom 
into the room because there are 
spikes in the walls. 

Reach Shandar's fortress. In the 
large room you must move along the 
edges because there are missiles in 
the ceiling. At the south-east end pick 
up treasure. At the north-west end, 
activate the handle. At the north-east 



end, fight the knight and take access 
behind him. 

In the next room follow the corri- 
dor and find a mechanism to be 
activated in a small room to the 
west. At the end, fight against the 
gorgon - beware, she inverts - then 
go into a large room with a fountain 
which raises life points. This diver- 
sion to the north is not compulsory 
because you can move directly south 
when you enter the room and reach 
the labyrinth with mummies and a 
witch. Take the passage to the south, 
then to the east. 

There is a mechanism to be acti- 
vated in the small room to the west. 
Carry on and fight the lion guards. 
The grille is closed and the trapdoor 
has to be activated to open it. At the 
next crossroads go north. At the end 
you will find treasures and a mecha- 
nism. Return to the crossroads. Go 
down to the south. 

Follow the corridors to the end. 
Find a small room containing a 
magician. Listen to what he says and 
don't hit him. Then take the north 
access in the previous corridor. Put 
the parrot in front of the ear and the 
passage will open. In the next room 
slalom otherwise you will bash your 
head. In the next room, move along 
the edges and prepare psychic shel- 
ter. Fight against Shandar in the 
north access. 

Kill Shandar, go back to the 
country. Now you'll just have to wait 
for Ishar 3...

Here's a useful tip to make winning a 
fight much easier in Streetfighter 2. 
Just load the game as normal and 
choose your character, but when you 
are asked to change disks and press 
a key, change disks and press the ini- 
tial letter of the name of your chosen

Unfortunately this only works

Why is FT2 not in the shops? 

The very essence of a football strategy game is its accuracy. With transfers happening 
every day. rules being changed and players being injured, shop games are out-of-date the 
moment they come out Some publishers issue yearly revisions. That may be fine but not 
fine enough for us. The FT2 you buy is 100% up-to-date We revise the program and data 
weekly There are no compromises. Who wants to play a game that says that Florentine 
are in serie A RTfl or Newcastle in Division One? Who wants to play a game that

FALSE IDENTITY 




Despite fitting turbo boosters to your personal 
transport. C5s still managed to outrun you. 

I've tried, without success, to get past 
the passport on the Bedhin-6 asteroid 
in BAT 2. I arrive in the space station 
and the only way out as far as I can 
see is past this guard. I have the 
Praetor's Clothes and the false 
Praetor Card, but I just get arrested 
and the game ends. Where am I 
going wrong? 

Derek Piper, New Barnet, Herts 

You actually need a real Praetor's 
Card to get past the guard. Go to 
Terminal TB at the Astroport and 
head off to the Janus Tower. Check 
on the board and go to the sauna. 
Now go into your inventory and click 
on the magnifying glass. Take the 
card of a free Praetorian judge and 
swap it for your false card. Don 't 
take anything else. Now head back 
to the asteroid and you should be 
able to get past the guard.

skeleton dropped when you tickled 
his foot and use it on the hand which 
pops out of the cage. Use the fly- 
swatter on the fly that comes through 
the window. 

Get Magic User to cast a spell 
on the dead fly, then get Handyman 
to throw it at the picture of the magi- 
cian. The cupboard opens and a 
voodoo doll of the king pops out.

from under the magician's picture. 

THE THREE SISTERS 




Somehow. Brian couldn't get usd to his father's 
Idea of mindless family entertainment. 

I'm stuck in World Two of Heimdall. 
The quest involves giving three gifts 
to the sisters on the island with the 
temple One of these gifts is a magic 
apple, the second a necklace and 
the third is something to make the 
third sister see into the future. 

I've got the first two, but can't 
find the last object. It's connected to 
the huge horn on the top right island. 
I've got the teleport spell, but when I 
reach the horn I can't blow it 
because I haven't got the mouth- 
piece. Food is low and I've been 
back to all the other islands to try to 
find a way out. What must I do? 

Ian Watson, Norwich 

Go back to the middle island on the 
far left of Usgard's map. You must 
have the necklace, apple and two 
dragon's eggs - from the same 
islands where you found the Detect 
Doors spell. Give the correct objects 
to the sisters to open a door in the 
middle of the island. Enter the temple 
and cast a Disenchantment spell to 
get the mouthpiece. Now head back 
to the final island.

the Temptress. How do you get into 
Taidgh's house and the Were Gate? 
I have tried Grub's lockpick, but it 
doesn't work. 

David Heys, Rhyl, Clwyd 

To get into the Were Gate you need 
a little help from Toby, Goewin and 
the dragon in the Severed Arms 
- Toby gives you information in 
exchange for Mallkin's book, 
Goewin makes up a magic potion 
and the dragon tells you what to say 
to the gargoyles on the Were Gate. 
When you speak to the gargoyles 
they tell you they will only open the 
gates for a lady, so go back to the 
Apoth Shop and ask Goewin if she'll 
go to the Were Gate with you 

Getting into Taidgh's house is 
more straightforward - give the lock- 
pick to Ratpouch and ask him to 
unlock the door, ensuring there are 
no Skorl guards around first. £?

cade on the right. Make your way down

IN FROM THE COLD 

And here's a solution to Laurence 
Caruana's letter asking for help with 
Escape From Coldttz In AF50 

There are three objects used for 
opening tunnel entrances. The first, a 
saw. is used on fake floors Indoors: the 
second Is a pick axe used on concreted 
holes outside, and the last Is a shovel 
used for opening tunnels covered in grass 
and for opening tunnel exits from the 
inside. An exit can be spotted by the 
ground highlighted below it and you can 
use a shovel on it by rotating the joystick 
360 degrees while tapping Fire. 

To attempt an escape with the four 
men you need a saw, a shovel, four can- 
dles, four border passes, four guard's 
uniforms (optional), and lots of security 
passes (optional). Then do this: 

1. Assemble your men In the canteen. 

2. Use the saw on the tunnel entrance. 

3. Give one man a border pass, candle 
and a shovel, then put this man In the 
tunnel (by using the candle). 

4. Using the same man go down and 
open the exit there. 

5. When the character appears above 
ground press the Space bar and run up to 
the right, avoiding all guards. You should 
escape before they shoot you. 

6. Repeat stages 3-5 with all remaining 
characters. 

This is difficult, so you must be patient. If 
you get stuck, try wearing the uniforms.

there's always one that's the best. One that 
emerges as the standard by which others are 
measured. 

That one is Dtgita* Wordworth? 

How do we do it? 

With the University of Wales, Swansea, we study 
how people use word processors. We watch. 
We listen. And, we think. 

Through research like this, we've been able to 
develop new processes, like Auto Correction, that 
corrects your mistakes as you type, automatically. 

Software which thinks for you, it's what we call 
DigiSense."

Renowned throughout the Amiga 
industry for having a bit of a 
beard, Jeff is also a pretty hot 
authority on the Amiga, and every 
month he will be sharing his opin- 
ions with you, you lucky devils. 







OM'T TALK WITH YOUR 
MOUTH FULL 

You don't half hear some rubbish about how Amiga applications 
! not as good as similar stuff for W in dows. That's like saying 



reason for rt 

Whether we like it or not and for whatever reasons, the 
Amiga applications software market is tiny compared to that for 
Windows. Consequently, Amiga software manufacturers are 
smaller outfits with fewer resources, and they have to charge 
much less for the sweat of their brows because your average 
Amiga user doesn't have the wherewithal to stump up three or 
four times the cost of the computer for a single software package. 
Lower prices and relatively few customers means small profits for 
the software manufacturer. 

WAV TO make more money from a smaller number of cus- 
tomers, is to sell many value-for-money products rather than a 
single very big and very costly killer' application. Instead of mak- 
ing £200 profit from each of 500 customers, you make £20 profit 
from 10,000 customers who can afford to buy five or six less 
expensive products. The time spent on the development of a 
product is usually linked to the profit it makes. The less profit a 
product makes, the loss it gets developed. 

Many Amiga software manufacturers take this cautious, but 
wise, business approach and as a consequence, we end up with a 
lot of software that isn't as fully featured as it might be. Just 
making the software better - without the customer base growing 
- will not necessarily mean you will sell more of it. In fact, devel- 
oping software into an all-singing, all-dancing killer may very well 
lose you sales. How can that be? Well, we're back to resources 
again, only this time I mean the cash in your pocket. 

I'm not saying that a killer Amiga application would necessar- 
ily cost many hundreds of pounds, although it probably would, 
but the extra hardware required by that application. In order use 
it properly could mount to a thousand pounds or more. 

IT MX WMLS down to memory and storage space. You might 
consider an extra 4Mb of memory to be loads and loads - it might 
have cost you almost as much as your Amiga - but to a killer 
application 4Mb of memory Is pocket change. A superior applic 
tion will be working with superior data. It might be CD-quality 
sound. It might be 24-bit animations or presentations destined for 
video, ft might be full colour desktop publishing. All these pur- 
suits require as much memory as you can throw at them. 

Truly serious applications require truly serious amounts of 
memory and data storage space. How many of you have 64Mb i 
memory and at least one gigabyte of hard disk? Three or four 
thousand pound's worth! Not many, I bet. So, if a company 
spends mega bucks and mega time producing a mega Amiga 
application that requires mega resources, very few Amiga ow 
are going to buy it because they don't have the m emory and 
disk megabytes required to run the software. And it would be 
exactly the same story if you owned a Windows machine. 

But if you do have the megabytes, despite the rubbish you 
hear, there is Amiga software that will drive that hardware to 
least the quality of top Windows software, often better. Amiga 
graphics software like /magemasfer RfT and ImageFX (forget 
ADProl) are every bit as good as Windows equivalents. And they 
cost much less. The Studio 16 sampler is a truly professional qual- 
ity package that can simultaneously playback eight channels of 
CD-quality stereo sound direct from hard disk. These are just two 
examples, there arc many more. 

Without the hardware, you cant use the software, but that 
doesn't mean it doesn't exist, so the next time you hear someone 
bullshitting about how crap the Amiga is and how much better 
Windows software is. do us a favour and put them right, will y< 



OF AMIGA FORMAT 



WELCOME TO THE serious' bit of the 
magazine. I use the quotes because it is 
not strictly necessary to have a PhD, a 
beard and smoke a pipe to get anything 
out of this section, in fact, it's probably 
a bit of a disadvantage (especially smok- 
ing the pipe). What we have for you on 
the following mass of pages is the top 
selection of this month's new releases, 
no joystick required. 

We review all the prominent 
releases, not just the things which will 
look good or get a good score. Every 
month we include the good and the bad 
(and, in the case of Richard Baguley, the 
ugly) in an attempt to give you a com- 
plete and comprehensive guide to 
products currently available. 

Our reviews can be trusted, because 
they are written by the best in the busi- 
ness. What's more they are written for 
you - the Amiga user. All our reviewers 
are dedicated Amiga fans, so they know 
just what it is like to use and rely on 
Commodores greatest gift to mankind 
every day of their worthless little lives. 

We're not perfect. Very occasionally 
we do make mistakes, but rest assured 
that we will always put them right. 



If you have a problem with any of 
our reviews, or you have a suggestion 
about how we could do things better, 
please drop me a line at the normal edi- 
torial address: Amiga Format, Future 
Publishing, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath, 

Avon BA1 2BW. 

I hope you enjoy this month's selec- 
tion of reviews, features and advice, 
and I hope you will continue to do so in 
the months to come.

When your Amiga's standard 

sound just isn't quite good 

enough, what can you do? 

Our musically-minded 

men Richard Baguley and 

John Kennedy listen out for 

the alternatives. 



AT THE TIME of its launch in 1986 
the Amiga's sound capabilities were 
State-of-the-art The ability to replay real 
sounds ;u varying pitches made lor excel- 
lent sound effects lor games but a whole 
new type of program - music trackers. 

These daw, the standard sound isn't 
quite good enough for all applications. 
There needs to be another technological 
leap - the step up to CD— quality sound. 
This ultimate audio upgrade is now within 
the reach of all Amiga owners, by means ol 
plug-in cards. 

Before we look at them, here .ire a lew 
words about how your Amiga makes musk . 

The Amiga uses 8-hit audio, which 
means the sound waveform can be digi- 
tised with 256 different levels. When the 
digital information is passed through a dig- 
ital to analogue converter, the sound can 
be reconstituted. 

The speed at which these conversions 
take place is called the Sample Rate, and it 
also alfects the quality o! the sound: basi- 
cally the faster the Sample Rate, the better 
the sound. 

The Sample Rate of a system can be 
increased from 8kHz (8.000 samples a sec- 
ond) to 16kHz, and the sound quality will 
therefore improve too. However, it's not 
possible to simph keep on increasing the 
Sample Rate until the sound qualitv is per- 
fect, because even time a sound is 
sampled, extra distortion, called quantiza- 
tion noise, is introduced. 




^•* ••■•••« if- .•!« 

>k-/tV" ••* ?•• •\\ 










- • • • • %-»•*-<«># 




TMJillH 1 1 H ..& 



Using your Amiga and 
a 16-bit sampler card 
you can produce 
CD-quality sound. 




The degree of this noise is ;t function 
of the number of bits used to sample the 
sound, so no matter how fast an 8-bit sam- 
pler works, the sound will inevitably still be 
far from perfect. 

The way around ibis problem is to use 
more bits to store the sounds, and this is 
exactly what the Toccata and Wave tools 
add-on cards do. The cards use 16 biLs to 
sample each pan ol the sound, and as a 
result the noise level is much lower. With a 
fast Sample Rate, sav -Hkll/. the clarity of 
the sampled sounds is excellent - in Fact, 
it's almost indistinguishable from the origi- 
nal sound. This is why audio CDs sound so 
good: they use lb-hit sound samples, wink- 
ing at 41kHz. 

WHO WANTS IT? 

Because the sound cards work at profes- 
sional qualitv, ihev are useful tor capturing 
sounds which will eventually appear on CD. 
For example, in a music studio the ability to 
sample sounds and edit them digitally is 
more appealing than playing around with 
expensive magnetic tape. Even better, once 
the sounds are in digital format they can be 
copied directly to DAT (Digital Audio Tape) 
for mastering with no extra noise or hiss 
introduced in the process. 

Other uses for the CD-quality sample 
s\ stems include pre-recorded messages. 
For example, in a multimedia presenta- 



tion, it is much nunc convenient to plai 
back 16-bit samples than it is to trv to con- 
trol a tape recorder or sequence an 
expensive musical synthesiser. Finally, in 
the emerging world of digital desktop 
video where films can be played directly 
from CD-ROM. there is a real need ioi 
affordable hardware to capture the accom- 
panying soundtracks. 

OW THE CARDS 

What you can't do with one of these lb-bit 
sample (aids is simply replace the Amiga's

same way as a PC. 

Instead, only programs which have 
been specifically written to deal with a par- 
ticular card can Ik- used, and for this 
reason the software which comes with it is 
of paramount importance. At the very least 
there must be plenty of editing and play- 
back options, and you would also expect 
some echo and pilch changing features. 

The huge size of 16-bil samples means 
it is highly advisable to sample the sounds 
directly to hard disk. Software which 
doesn't oiler this feature will limit the 
length of samples to the amount of your 
free RAM, and not main Amigas have 
80Mb of RAM handy.

Toccata and Wave tools cards have to offer.

Software support for Toccata comes 

in the form ol two separate packages; a 

suite ol programs specifically tor the hard- 
ware, and a standalone sampling program. 
The hardware—Specific software includes a 
Control panel, where inputs t "an l>e

handy set ol level meters help set the cor-

able microphone gain and input output

Unfortunately, no ARexx support is 
provided, which means you can't use other 
software to control the sampling. Because 
a large proportion ol the potential market 
for this card will be multimedia users this 
is needs immediate fixing. 

The remaining programs provide a 
quick option lor Sample and Playback >in(.\

MULTIMEDIA MAGIC? 

Although the manual doesn't really mention It one o 
the most powerful aspects of the Toccata 16-toit sam- 
pler is the way it can work with Microsystems' video 
digitiser, VLab. Version 4.1 of the digitizer software 
allows you to sample an audio source at the same 
time as a video source, and to play it back at the sa 
time, through the IFR (Interlaced Frame Recording) 
technique used by VLab. 

This has great potential for multimedia pur 
Imagine being able to play back high-quality video 
and 16-bit sound at the same time in your latest mu 
media creation. Although the Toccata software does 
not have ARexx support the VLsb software has mora 
ARexx commands than you could shake a pointy stick 
at so you could easily control it from a program such 
as Sca/a or Media/joint 

Just think, you could even create a script which 
would digitise in a video sequence from a camera and 
play this back at your unsuspecting user... 



The second set of software is a 16-bit 
sample editing program, the same one 
which is supplied with the Maestro hard- 
ware. Maestro offers digital-only import 
and export of samples, and having one to 
use with Toccata would be pretty handy. 
With the full set of hardware. Toccata 
1 ould be used to sample a Ming, and after 
editing. Maestro would download the fin- 
ished work direct to DAT. 

Editing is done with the Samplitude 
package, which oilers all the usual features 
such as cutting and pasting, and effects 
such as echo and time stretching. Due to 
the nature of lb-bit sound editing, pro- 
< easing a large disk-based sample can take 
a very long lime. 

A plavlist of sample clips can be con- 
structed, but this is far from being a 
multi track recorder. Samplitude works like 
an ordinary H— bit sampler, but with better 
sound. From within the editor it is possible 
to make use of the sampling hardware, but 
no compression modes are allowed. 

The sound quality achieved by sam- 
pling through Samplitude is slightly 
poorer than with the hardware-specific 
software, so foi the besl results ii is nerev 
sary to run both programs, usinj* one to 
sample and one to edit so it's a pitv there is 
no way to swap samples between programs. 
Toccata is an excellent piece ol hard- 
ware which deserves better software 
support. The supplied programs are not 
poor, but they aren't excellent either. 
Although no mention is made in the man- 
ual. Toccata can be used in conjunction 
with the VLab digitiser. which opens up 

some interesting possibilities. 

Ihe card also samples direct to hard 
disk with a 68020 processor or greater, 
although for full 10— bit audio you will 
probably need a 68040. Toccata isn't a 
musical instrument by itself: there is no 
way of triggering samples over MIDI, and 
no real-time pitch shifting. This is no rival 

to a dedicated Akai sampler. 

Ihe lack of post-sample muliitrack 
mixing also stops it rivalling the SunRize 
hardware. What it does do. and it does ii 
extremely well, is make superb qualitv Hi 
and X-bit samples. What you do after thai 
is up to you. *2>

Digital Audio Designs ■ Blittersoft 0908 220196 ■ £349.95 



If you were to take any record from the charts, it's 
more than likely that it would use samples for some of 
the instruments. After all, dealing with a sample is 
easier than working with a real instrument and you 
can manipulate it in various weird ways. 

Most Amiga users will be familiar with samples 
through programs such as SoundTracker and OctaMED, 
or through the soundtrack of games. The Paula custom 
chip can handle up to four channels of 8-bit sound, but 
these days most musicians prefer to work in 16-bit 
because this gives much better quality. 8-bit samplers 
are widely and cheaply available, but 16-bit samplers 
are a bit thinner on the ground. 

Wavetools is a half-length Zorro card, so it can fit 
into any big box Amiga such as the A4000 or A3000. 
Because 16-bit sampling involves a lot of data, a 68030 
running at 25mHz is the minimum recommended con-

figuration. Large amounts of memory are not vital, as 
the sampling is direct to disk. This means that it's writ- 
ten to the disk as it's sampled, and played back in a 
similar way. As you'd expect a hard disk is vital, and it 
has to be reasonably fast at transferring data. A lot of 
free space is also required, because a 30-second sam- 
ple at the Sampling Rate used by CDs (44.1kHz) will 
need just over five megabytes of disk space. 

I certainly can't fault the sampler in terms of qual- 
ity. Even at the lower sample rates (the lowest being 
17kHz), the samples are bright and clear. The quality 
you get will very much depend upon the quality of the 
signal, but if you're working from a clean source such 
as a CD player, the level of noise added by the sam- 
pling process is indistinguishable. 

Once you've sampled your noise, you can use the 
various tools to cut and paste bits of it and you can 
even mix together different sounds to create new 
sounds. The editing tools are fairly minimal, but you 
could use them to chop out unwanted sounds or join 
several sounds together. They are adequate for edit- 
ing voiceovers and the like, but a serious musician 
wouldn't feel at home here. The software also has a 
comprehensive ARexx interface, which means you 
could use a program such as Scala to trigger it. £>

Wavetools allows you to cut and paste between different

COMING SOON... 

Wavetools b a fine sampler, but It can't produce 
sound processing effects such as flanging and 
echo. You also can't trigger a sample from an 
external source. Digital Audio Design are working 
on an RTX (Real Time extension) module, which 
will have a Digital Signal Processor chip for live 
effects. Wavetools will then be in competition 
with the Studio 16 card, which is about to get a 
software upgrade.

WAY BACK IN Issue 46. we 
reviewed a new emulator which 
promised to give you a multiiasking 
Apple Mac emulator without losing 
the Amiga side of things. It worked 
well, albeil with certain problems, 
and we gave it a rating of 80 per cent 

One of the primary limitations 
Was that the CPU of the Amiga had 
to be lilted with a Memory 
Management t'nil (MMU). This 
ruled out the newest big box Amiga, 
the A4OO0/030. which is fitted with 
an 680EC30 CPl . which has no 
MML*. A version which did not 
require die MML' (known as 32-bit 
clean) has long been promised, and 
ihe latest version of the software 
(3.40) has finally delivered this. 

The other requirements of the 
emulator are the same: von still need 
to get hold of the ROM of an SE30 
Macintosh, and this version of the 
software also requires System 7.1. the 
latest version of the Mac Operating 
system. You can also allocate more of 
the Amiga's RAM to the Mac, which 
is a good thing since Macs are notori- 
ously greedy for memory. Given thai 
this has to be fast memory, the Mac

display takes around 1Mb of memory 
and the fact that running System 7.1, 
wiih less than 4Mb of RAM is virtu- 
ally impossible, it's not realistic to 
consider this emulator unless you've 
got at least 10Mb of memory. 

There have also been various 
other enhancements - it's now possi- 



ble to move files between the Mac 
and the Amiga side without using 
floppy disks and the authors have 
improved the KIT handling, giving a 
speed increase of several times. 

The 1*1) program Sptrdometer 
(roughly equivalent to the Amiga 
program Sysinfo) reveals thai the 



AmigaDOS file access instructions 
and intercepts diem. This means that 
the entire process is completely 
transparent to the user. It may seem 
to take a Utile longer loading and 
saving files, but after a while you 
won't even notice il is there. 

Several modes of compression 
are supported, so you can choose the 
best for speed or pack rate. The soft- 
ware supports the XPK cruncher 
libraries (there are do/ens of these 
in the Public Domain) so you can 
easily update or change the crunch- 
ing routines. 

At the moment. Disk Expander 
has to be installed on a drive or parti- 
tion. This means that all files will be 
compressed and decompressed when 
written to that particular device; vou 
can't specify a particular directory. 
That is the only Haw in what is other- 
wise an excellent system. O

the equivalent real Mac (an SE30), 
with a speed of 4.84 times that of a 
Mac Classic (against the speed of 
4.80 for the SE30). Running on an 
A3000 (which has an MML' fitted), 
the relative speed is 7.150 times that 
of a Mac Classic. To put this into 
context, a Quadra 700 (a very fast 
liHO 40-based Mac used bv our ail edi- 
tor) has a speed of 30. HO times that

Unfortunately, the emulation is 
not yet bug free. We were unable to 
get the Appletalk network working 
without crashing the Mac. despite 
the fact this worked fine on previous 
versions. All other programs, such as 
Photoshop and Quark XPress, worked 
line on the emulated Mac, and the 
fact that upgrades and bug fixes take 
only a matter of days to appeal 
means that Ernptant is now even more 
of a realistic option for somebody 
wanting both a Mac and an Amiga, 
but who doesn't want to clog up 
their desk with all those boxes. O

impact of a letter. Although Fax modems 
can send Faxes, you need extra software to 
translate the received Fax into a readable 
formal, or to transform the text and images 
you are faxing into a format which can be 
transmitted to the other Fax machine. 

Fax modems are divided into two 
types: class I and class 2. TrapFax is a class 
2 only program, so it won't work with any 
Fax modem which only supports class I. 
This rules out popular modems such as the 
US Robotics sportster or the HST DS+, but 
it will work with the Supra V32Bis Fax 
modem, although the LC model of this 
modem is class 1 only, so this will not work. 



TrapFax is produced by a German 
company called Trapdoor Developments, 
who are primarily known for their Share- 
ware E-Mail program called TrapDoor. It 
works by emulating a printer driver, so any 
program which prints through Workbench 
can be used to send Faxes. So, you could 
fax your latest creation direct from DPaint, 
or use a DTP program such as froPage or 
Fagestream to create your own lelterhcaded 
paper. As far as the program is concerned, 
it's sending the data to a printer, but 
TrapFax is capturing this data, saving it to 
disk and converting it into a format suit- 
able for sending to a remote Fax machine. 



TrapFax allows you to 

set up a phonebook 

of your frequently 

dialled numbers, and 

send a fax to several 

of them with just a 

couple of clicks. 



High quality results 
on your Faxes are 
possible with 
TrapFax. This is espe- 
cially obvious when 
your documents have 
graphics on them.

( hire the priming process is complete, 
the TrapFax window (which runs on 
Workbench) pops to the front and asks 
you for the Fax number of the recipient. 
TrapFax includes a comprehensive phone 
book, so you can put your frequent num- 
bers in here, and you can even define 
groups of people. You can also schedule 
your Faxes for a specific time, so you can 
send all your day's Faxes after 6pm, when 
the cost of phone calls is lower. 

Once you've set all the details, TrapFax 
gets on with the business of sending the 
Fax. This is a pretty straightforward pro- 
cess, and ii doesn't put much strain on the 
Amiga, so you can happily get on with 
oilier things while it's working. 

Receiving a Fax works much the same 
way. By dragging an icon into your 
WBStartup drawer and leaving your 
modem switched on, it will automatically 
pick up the phone when it rings, and try to 
lalk lo the Fax on the other end. As with 
sending, this all happens in the back- 
ground with no need for user intervention, 
Once you've received the Fax, you can view 
it. print it or save it as a two-colour IFF file. 

The main competitor for this program 
is GPFax (£49.99 from First Computer 
Centre on 0532 319444). which works in a 
similar way. However, the quality of the 
Faxes, especially those with graphics, is 
superior with TrapFax. All of die programs 
which form the TrapFax system run on the 
Workbench screen, and It's much more in 
tune with newer versions of the operating 
system, and with things such as Fax 
datatypes for Multiview. It's an impressive 
program, but because it's class 2. the type 
of modems it can be used on is limited. 




Out now 



The speed of sending a Fax is fixed. 
This program works as fast as any 
other Fax program. 



Ami vii\ 



Contains plenty of technical informa- 
tion and easy-to-follow tutorials to 
get you up and running. 

ACCESSIBILITY 

The method of creating faxes means 
you can fax from within any program 
that uses Workbench printer drivers. 



Standard things you expect, such as 
delayed sending, multiple recipients 
and phonebook. WB 2 or above only. 

VALUE 

It's £25 more than GPFax, but it is 
easier to use and the results are 
more impressive. 



VERDICT 



" An excellent Fax 
program which 
blends in very well 
with the operating 
system. However, the 
fact that it is class 2 
only rules out using 
it with some off 
the popular types 
of modem. "

Old hand Nick veitch sees

programs to use these displays, as long as

was followed by a wave ol cards which 
COUld dick the Amiga into opening up 
screens on their display. The Retina in 
probably ihe best known ol dice, followed

The Rainbow III card doesn't really look like it is worth more than *n A4000/030. but look at all that lovely Fast video RAM. 






THE COMPETITION: HOW THE OTHER CARDS MEASURE UP 

There is more than one 24-bit display card, as regular AF readers If you are going to fork out large chunks of your hard-earned, it 
must surely know, unlike a RAM board or an external floppy is a good idea to check that the board you are going to buy can 

drive, they are not necessarily all much of a muchness. Some of do all the things you expect of it. Here, then, is a brief summary 
them are quite special, while others are not. of all the boards recently tested in Amiga Format...

Ma croSy stem's Retina was not only the first 
affordable 24-bit display, but it was also revolu- 
tionary in its ability to force ordinary software to 
use it as a display card. 

It is very simple to install and use, and has the 
largest range of possible display modes, but the 
lack of a through port makes it inconvenient to 
use in a one-monitor set-up. 

The best feature of the Retina is probably its 
speed. Thanks to very fast RAM packages, it can 
trounce most other cards (but certainly not the 
Rainbow III). Quite a range of software has been 
written to directly support the Retina, and the 
card works well with the V-Lab digitiser. 
We gave it 82 per cent overall. 




The Picasso was touted as the thinking man's 
Retina. The board is currently in its second incar- 
nation and has benefited from a bit of 
re-engineering. 

In terms of speed it can probably compete 
with the Retina, thanks mainly to its extra special 
on-board blitter, although the MacroSystems card 
is usually faster for animations. 

Thanks to a pass-through socket you can eas- 
ily run all your software through just one monitor 
which is automatically switched by the hardware 
so there is no need for messing about. 

The Picasso is slightly better at dealing with 
AmigaDOS, which may or may not be why we 
awarded it 85 per cent. 




The GVP EGS Spectrum card is probably the most 
comparable to the Rainbow III. A re-worked ver- 
sion of the G-Force add-on, this card is fully EGS 
compliant and sits nicely with AmigaDOS. 

rt is more expensive than the Picasso or 
Retina, although it does come with more bundled 
software. Unfortunately, most of this software is 
not very useful. 

The big drawback to the Spectrum card is that 
it is slow, with a capital V for 'I'm off down the 
pub for a bit while the card gets on with the job 
in hand'. Being fully EGS compatible does slow a 
board down, but the Spectrum borders on the 
unusable on occasions. That didn't stop us from 
awarding it 85 percent though. 




DISPLAY MODES 

For some reason most people judge a 
graphics card by the highest resolution 
of its screen modes. It isn't really the 
equivalent of the 0-60 time of a car or 
the standing quarter of a bike, but for 
those who collect such figures, here are 
all the possible Rainbow screen modes 
(on a CBM 1960/1942 monitor): 

EGS 640 x 480

Rainbow's output is extremely stable, so you can always see just how 
terrible your pictures are. 




Most EGS tools supplied with the Rainbow III card are just replacements 
for existing Workbench utilities. 



face which is entirely AmigaDOS legal and 
enables screens 10 be opened through the 
Amiga display database. Essentially, this 
means thai the Amiga can treat the EGS 
card as just another screen mode. The soft- 
wire will lake care of interfacing all 
graphics operations to the graphics card 
using the appropriate library. 



you need to know about ii is that it is ihe 
best art package available for the Amiga 
and il is available hi versions for a variety 
of 24-bit cards. The Painter software is not 
bad. but it seems odd that they chose to 
include it, because it isn't a match for even 
a cut down version of TVPainl. 

The EGS implementation of ihe 
Rainbow III is similar, as you would expeel, 
to thai of the Spectrum. The major annoy- 
ance is that ihe installer software (as with 
i lie Spectrum) asks what frequency your 
monitor will use. This presupposes ihat 
you will only be using one monitor with 
the Rainbow- I know a lot of people don't 
have a monitor, let alone more than one, 
bin what if you did? 

Rainbow is configured to run as an 
exira display, rather than a replacement. I 
suppose that is the justification for not hav- 
ing a through socket for Amiga video. 
Cunningly, when the mouse goes off the 
side (or top or bottom, depending on 
which install option you selected) it 
appears on the EGS screen. 



This has several advantages. The card 
does not rely on software being written 
specifically for il - it can just use 
AmigaDOS to redirect it when a screen is 
opened. Any software which is written 
specifically to make use of the extra fea- 
tures of the EGS board will work on any 
EGS card. Therefore, instead of software 
companies re-releasing new versions of 
their software to work wiih different cards, 
they only need to write one EGS version 
and all EGS cards will support it This is 
good news for the user as well as the soft- 
ware house, because in the real world they 
never went to the trouble of releasing soft- 
ware for every card available. Instead iliev 
would just pick one or two and hope that 
people would buy those cards. 

So, what EGS software has been writ- 
ten? Well, there is an EGS version of 
TVPainl, and an EGS version of ImagefX at 
ihe moment. Il should only be a matter of 
time before all popular graphics software is 
available in an EGS format. The Rainbow 
card is bundled with a copy of Painter or 
more usefully, a copy of TVPainl Junior. H 
you have never used TVPainl before, all 



* The card subscribes to a new retargetable graphic 
standard, ECS, enabling screens to be opened through 
the Amiga display database, giving it major advantages. 



The ability to display on two screens at 
once is quite an advantage - especially 
when using any software that has to render 
an image (such as ADPro, ImngeTX, 
PractaiPro, RralBD) as you can have both 
the edit/creation windows and the image 
window displayed simultaneously. 

If your software does not support ihe 
display database, or you're running on a 
very old version of Workbench and don't 
have one, you can still use the Rainbow. 
Rather like the Retina software, it has a 
program which will intercept any attempt 
to open a new screen. These screens can 
then be forced to open up on the Rainbow 
if required. Not all software likes ihis, and 
their isn't much point unless you want the 
speed increase of ihe Rainbow. 

On the whole, the Rainbow III is a 
lightning fast and extremely stable card, 
which is held back only by a lack of soft- 
ware. Like the other drawback, the price, 
this is something which is bound to change 
in time. . £p

SCALABLE VERSUS BITMAP 

Most fonts us«d in desktop publishing, video and many other 
applications these days are scalable fonts, but most computer 
users are probably more familiar with bitmap fonts. 

The concept of a bitmap font is easy to understand. The pixels 
that form the characters are represented by binary digits. A value 
of '1' indicates a black bit while a value of 0' is white. This is fine 
until you want to change the fonf s size. For example, say you 
wanted the character to be 12 pixels tall on the screen instead of 
eight, where would the extra data come from? Well, the usual 
answer is nowhere, the data representing the pixels is mathemati- 
cally u 

Scalable fonts do not store individual dots. They contain infor- 
mation on how to actually draw the character. This means that 
they can be scaled up and down without compromise. 




f r 

Setting metric information such as kerning values is simple. 





The only thing that takes a lot of 
time is generating the Postscript 
fonts and the bitmaps. 



The manual is up to the usual Soft 
Logik standards, including a usable 
index and relevant tutorials. 

ACCESSIBILITY 

Experience with a structured art pack 
age is useful if you want to get the 
most of this, but it's not essential. 



Almost everything you could want. 
Better support for Workbench and 
ProPage fonts would' ve been useful 



You would have to really, really 

need a piece of software to pay this 
much for it. 



VERDICT 



— Typesmith 2.0 is an 
excellent piece of soft- 
ware, but £170 is just 
too much to expect 
most people to pay. 
Hopefully It won't stay 
at this price for long, 
though, so look out for 
a bargain in the near 
future. **

AS WE ALREADY know - „ny. 
let me rephrase thai. As those of us who 
were clever enough to buy Issue 53 of 
Amiga Formal already know. Imagine is a 
pretty stunning ray-tracing package. You 
can create wonderful photographic quality 
still images, you can even generate huge 
animated epics (SCSI devices permitting) 
to rival the likes of, er, whoever it is that 
makes huge animated epics. 

But, the problem is, you must have the 
objects to render in the first place. A few 
issues ago we looked at Essence, which was a 
great collection of texture maps for 
Imagine. Texture maps are very nice things 
loo. but you have to apply them to some- 
thing. You need objects. 

Here then is a set of three disks that 
promises to fulfil all your object desires. 
Well, that is if all your desire of an object is 
that it should be some piece of Americana. 
Preferably in the 50s. Perhaps things found 
in some sort of diner. If that's exacdv what 

Designer 





if you've got imagine but you're lacking in 
imagination, then you'll find this collection of 
objects more than useful. Nick veitch explains. 



you need to complete aforementioned 
huge epic, then you are in luck, because 
that is exactly what these disks contain. 

Among the diverse elements you will 
find such mundane objects as a plate, and 
absolutely splendid constructions such as a 
reproduction Wurlilzer jukebox, complete 
with funny lights and a stack of discs. Note 
for younger readers, music used to be sup- 
plied on 7-inch discs made from vinyl. 

These would then be placed on a rotat- 
ing table, spun around at 45 or 78 rpm 
and have a needle placed on them. This 
often gave better sound reproduction than 
on CD Bob Dylan records, (but then you 
won't have heard of him either). 



No 50s diner would 
be complete without 
an authentic waste 
disposal system. 



The Designer objects, of which there 
are over 30, all come with relevant 
brush maps and attributes, so unlike some 
of the PD Imagine ubjecls (which have usu- 
ally been converted over from some other 
object formal), you won't have to spend 
hours re-colouring them yourself - thev 



LIGHTING 

This isn't really anything to do with the product under review, 
but it is probably a good moment to have a word about lighting 
in Imagine. Without decent lighting, you either get a flat images 
(too many lights) or something that resembles the view from 
the middle of a pint of Guinness (too few lights). To get the best 
and most natural results, you should place one light source 
roughly behind, above and slightly to one side of the camera. 
Obviously more complicated setups may require more lights, but 
this is a good guide for simply lighting one object. 






This is probably the most precise and expertly 
crafted reproduction of a jukebox you are ever 
likely to get out of Imagine. I wonder if they've 
got any Buddy Holly on there? 







I think I'll have hash browns, some eggs over 
easy, a Bud and a pair of Levi's. Ooops. sorry, I 
forgot where I was for a moment there... 

are ready to use. Some of them make use 
of the original Imagines textures, so make 
sure that vou haven't deleted them or shuf- 
fled them around on your disk. 

All the objects are very competently 
composed, and they even begin with 
rather sensible offsets, so if you just load 
them all into the Stage Editor you can 
come up with a fairly reasonable composi- 
tion with little difficulty. 

The objects are very well optimised for 
a fast render, and there arc even low mem- 
ory versions of some of them if you happen 
to be a bit challenged in that area. 

The rather reasonable U>-page man- 
ual explains all the details regarding how 
to install and use the objects, but this 
should be fairly self-evident to most 
Imagine users. 

It is a testament to die worth of this 
collection that I feel guilty about waffling 
on for so long and depriving you from see- 
ing even more outstanding images - if only 
the pages were bigger, the days longer, the 
Amiga a bit fasier... 



T, 




iifiii L 1 /-! 



What documentation do you need? 
Just load the files into Imagine and 
you'll soon know what's what. 

ACCESSIBILITY 

If you can master a simple file 
requester you shouldn't have any dif- 
ficulty at all. 



Good use of both textures and brush 
maps and all in a convenient 
ready-to-render format. 



72 



It comes down to a simple equation. 
How much would someone have to 
pay you to create all these objects? 



VERDICT 



" Lavishly-tooled. 
These are probably the 
best Imagine objects I 
have seen since I was 
on the modem to Ron 
Thornton. If you are 
too inept or too lazy to 
create your own 
objects, these offer you 
a quite splendid oppor- 
tunity to create 
impressive scenes. m

UPPER DISK TOOLS 



Life can seem so unfair when 

your hard disk crashes or 

one of your vital floppy disks 

flips out. But don't despair. 

Richard Baguley can bring 

you a ray of hope with a new 

disk recovery tool.

LET'S GET OWE thing straight No 

disk recovery tool is ever going to replace a 
good back-up system. But you don't always 
have a back-up handy, and there are 
always going circumstances when you need 
to recover what you can from a disk that 
has somehow been damaged. 

Disk damage falls into two categories: 
Physical and structural. Physical damage is 
caused by a disk head crashing, dirt in the 
drive or some other such physical interfer- 
ence with the magnetic media of the disk. 

Structural damage is caused by such 
things as a program crashing or power fail- 
ures. This means that part of the disk 
doesn't make sense to the Amiga. The lat- 
ter of these is far easier to deal with 
because the data is invariably on the disk, 
but in a scrambled state. Physical damage 
is far more serious. 

Upper Disk Tools <UDT) is composed 
Of two programs: Recovery and DSBackup. 
Recovery is for trying to recover data from 
dodgy disks, and it takes a different 
approach to doing so than any other 



RECOVERY BLUES 

In order to test this disk, we simulated the sort of physical 
damage which floppy disks often get by scraping part of the 
metal oxide surface with a scalpel. This disk was so seriously 
damaged that AmigaDos was only able to read a few of the 
files. We then tried to recover the contents of the disk using 
three programs: Upper Disk Tools, DiskSalv (a PD program 
from Dave Haynie) and AmiBack Tools Deluxe (a commercial 
disk recovery and repair program). There were a total of 40 
files on the disk, which was an Amiga Format Subscribers' 
Disk. The table below gives you details of how successful each 
program was in recovering the data.

1. Files recovered completely intact with no damage. 

2. Files partially recovered but with some loss of data. 

3. Tiles not recovered at all. 

It's also interesting to note that Recover only took around five 
minutes to scan the disk, while DiskSalv tool several hours, 



recover,' program. Instead of trying to read 
off the dala and copy it to another drive 
(as DiskSalv does), it sets up a new device 
called REC: and puts an icon labelled 
Recover on your desktop. 

You can use the Shell or anv other 
directory utility (such as Directory Opus or 
Diskmaster) to access this device. Each 
device has its own directory within this, 
and moving into one of these directories 
causes Recovery to scan the disk. 

This creates three further directories, 
called Not_Deleted_Files. Deleted_FiIes. 
Lost_files and Headerless_liles. The first is 
for files which arc intact, and the second is 
for files which have been deleted, hut are 
still complete. The third is for files which 
have been deleted and were in directories 
that have also been deleted, and the last is 
for files of which parts have been lost. 

Also included in the package is 
DSBackup, which can be used to make a 
bac k-up copy of ihe information on a disk. 
This can either be a Mountlisi {a list of all 
the various parameters used for mounting 
the drive) or a Rigid Disk Block (a list of 
the drive parameters that arc held on the 
disk itself.) 

II your disk becomes damaged. 
DSBackup can also lx" vised to recreate the 
Mountlist of Rigid Disk Block parts of the 
disk from the back-up copy. I can think of 
at least two particularly harrowing occa- 
sions where having a such a back-tip of 
this information could have been 
extremely useful (for useful read 
sanity-preserving). *Z>

Disk Tools is an 
impressive performer 
and is a lot faster than

The smooth outline of the Pteranodon shows how good the 
spline-based modelling is for organic shapes. The haze is 
very effective for creating atmosphere. Wave effects are 
easy to create but the range of amplitudes and wave- 
lengths is a little limiting. 




-T ^ 









You've all seen the 'claymation' animations made famous by Tony Hart and the 
Creature Comforts series. Brian Larkman discovers the digital equivalent - 3D 

modelling and animation that's as soft as... well, clay, actually. 



SINCE THE EARLY dayi ol the 

Amiga, one paruculai software designei 
has stood out for the original - some 
might sav quirky - approach he has taken 
to 3D modelling mu\ animation. AlmOBl 
even piece of software thai Martin Hash 
has been involved with has been excellent, 
and Play mat ion is no exception. 

Most 3D systems offei some Ebnn of 
spline modelling. Ptaymation offen noth- 
ing else. As a result SoftrjM uned. fluid ami 

organic objects are easj to make and even 
easier to modify, jusi like real tla\ <>i plas- 
ticcne. when it comes to animation, even 

move and morph is just as smooth. 



PlaytHation is realU live programs that 
can run iiidcpeudcutlv and multi-task 
together. Several of these allow objects and 
SCenet to DC updated on-the-il\ s<» 

changes in & ulpture (the object modeller) 

i an be msianiK displayed in Direction (the 

scene editor). Let's examine PtaywiaUon's 
pint esses in more detail one-by one. 

SCULPTURE 

In the real world, all but die simplest 
objects consist ol .1 number of parts each 
with ilii 11 own shape, surface qualities and 
texture In Ptaymation each of these parts is 
» ailed a Segment and is modelled in the 




si ulpture module. Provided thai the whole 
Segment is 10 have the same surface <|ual- 
n\ and is to be animated in one piece, it 
can Ik* quite complicated dike the 
Pteranodon'l head shown in the illustra- 
tion). Otherwise .1 complex object needs to 

be broken down Into smaller pans, mod- 
elled and saved individually, as separate 
Segments. lo constnu l a Segment 
whether simple or complex, the starting 
point is indeed a point, placed by clicking 
on the Add Icon and then 011 the 
S< ulpture window. By adding a second 
point a line is automatically drawn 
between the two. 

Prom now on, as each extra control 
poiui is added, the line curves naturally 10 
pass smoothly through it. Tools are pro- 
vided lo control the magnitude and bias 

(direction) of the curve at each point, or 

to make the point angular. This type of 
spline or be/ier curve is used width in 2D 

illustration programs such as ProDraw but 
onrj rarer) in 9D systems. 

\liei assembly, each point on a 
Segment can be selected and moved. As 
you move it, even curve attached to the 
point bends smooihh in real time to 

accommodate the transformation (.roups 

of points ,.in also be selected and moved, 

enlarged, rotated, or hidden temporarily 

to make the model simpler to work on. 



Once all ol the individual Segments have 
been modelled in Sculpture, they can be 
assembled together into an object. To be 
capable of animation the Segments must 
he given a hierarchical relationship with 
each Other such as: shoulder raises, arm 
raises, hand raises, cup spills lea. The] 
must also be given material qualities 01 

attributes, surfai e texture, reflectiveness, 

transparent . and colour. Together these 
are what gives an object its Character. 

Issembt) is a simple matter of building 
a hierarthv. stalling with the Control 
Segment or Patriarch. Each Segment 
added is either a child or sibling of tflOK 
before it. depending on which Segment is 
selected when a new one is added. Each 
segment can Ik- moved, rotated and 
resized when it is added, but once it is a 
parent, it can't be transformed without its 
siblings being similarh affected. This can 

be .1 pun it you want to reuse a character. 




SCULPTURE 

Here, a rather complex segment of the Pteranodon's 
head and body is being edited. At any time it can be 
rendered as a solid to give a quick preview.

Objects or Characters are constructed from the more 
primitive segments in the Character Editor. A range of 
materials can be applied to the object using gadgets. 



ACTION 

Moving objects often express much of their character 
through their style of motion - their 'body language'. 
This is created in the Action Editor, 



126 



A parent button allows whole branches 
of the hierarchy to be transferred, so the 
links can be broken and reformed if neces- 
sary. Partial hierarchies can be saved to 
build up libraries of movements so that 
various heads speaking different words 
could be attached to the same body walk- 
ing along a path. 

Attributes are applied by selecting a 
Segment, clicking on a series of buttons 
and changing the relevant parameters. 
Basic qualities that can be varied by per- 
centage are: Ambient, Transparency, 
Roughness. Spe< ular. Mirror. Refraction. 

ACTION 

The most important aspect of any ani- 
mated character is its relative motion; and 
all sequential actions are designed, natu- 
ral lv enough, in the Action Editor. These 
motions are independent of direction and 
speed which are absolute motions, set in 
the Direction Editor. Relative motion is 
usually the most important part of any ani- 
mation because it conveys the most 
expressive part of a character - the actions 
which we call body language. 

Three forms of motion can be pro- 
duced. Skeletal motion involves moving 
complete Segments using the hierarchy, 
such as walking legs or flapping wings. 
Muscle motion is produced when individ- 
ual points on a Segment are moved so that 
a surface flexes or expands - like a muscle 
flexing or cheeks puffing out. Spine 
motion results when a single spline down 
the centre of a Segment is assigned to be a 
spine and is subsequently bent. 




SPLINE CURVES 

In most 3D programs curves are created using lots of short straight 
vectors and small facets to give the illusion of smooth surfaces, 
but complex organic shapes use so many vectors that the system 
can virtually seize up. Splines are, like vectors, defined mathemati- 
cally by origin, direction and length, but the end points also have a 
rotation and magnitude definition that bends the line smoothly. In 
effect the line must snake around to pass smoothly through each 
point. The path it takes can be varied by rotating and enlarging an 
invisible control lever attached to each point. An object made with 
these curves has faces - known as patches - defined by the splines. 
These can be rendered to create smooth, solid objects, naturally 
curved so there are no flat facets. By designing a splines system, 
Martin Hash has created a beautifully fluid modelling environment. 



DIRECTION 

Once all ol the various components of a 
'production' are constructed and given 
character, thev need to be assembled on 
the set and choreographed. This process is 
the job of the director and so is carried out 
in the Direction Editor. 

As well as directing the movement of 
the actors, you will also be expected to 
light the scenes and control die camera 
and its relative motions. Each object 
placed into the scene must be allocated to 
a path. Static objects use a single point 
path, but objects in motion can have com- 
plex paths with as many points as required. 
These can all be adjusted for bias so a path 
can be as twisting as you like. 

Each object, plus all of die light.* ana* 
the camera, as well as their 'targets', can 
also be controlled bv channels. Channels 
can control ease (changes of acceleration), 
scale, roll, tilt and swivel of objects, plus 
focal length and depth of field of the cam- 
era allowing these parameters to vary 
during a shot. 'Pulling' the focus during 
an animation can direct the eye from a dis- 
tant to a close object in a very cinematic 
and professional way. 



The animation of the 
horse is amazing 
(sorry you cannot see 
it). The limbs flex and 
the muscles expand 
smoothly in a very 
natural way. 



Although the Render Editor seems limited 
it is difficult to think of many features that 
could be added. Most of the required con- 
trol over rendering is available in the 
Direction Editor where lighting and cam- 
era parameters are extremely variable. In 
addition, using scripts and the CI.l, 24-bit 
batch processing is very easy so. in prac- 
tice, excellent true colour renders in anv 
resolution can be achieved with a little 



experimentation.

The Direction Editor is easily as elegant as the famous 
Caligari interface. Here the boat is following a path off to 
the right and the dinosaur is circling in toward the camera. 



RENDER 

This is a basic lores editor with controls for background 
colour (blend would have been useful), haze distance, ambi- 
ent colour (for lighter shadows), only two levels of 
anti-aliasing, a range of frames to be rendered, photo qual- 
ity button (shadows and reflections), resolution buttons and 
page size. Unfortunately it seems to be limited by fixed 
Amiga resolutions - or have I misunderstood? There is no 
help about this in the manual!

through a variety of incarnations and has 
changed from a basic text tool to a power- 
ful word processor. So how does the latest 
version deal with this weighty heritage? 

It isn't a What You See Is What You Gel 
(WYSIWYG) package. Programs such as 
Word worth will represent Your text on 
screen using the font that will be printed, 
but Protext uses only the default system 
font. Previous versions have included a 
powerful system called Stored Commands, 
where commands are held within the doc- 
ument itself, instead of having a separate 
script tile or program. 

This powerful system allows you to 
control every aspect of the document, 
including changing fonts, inserting other 
files, inserting the time of printing and 
even deleting or moving files. Now this has 
been expanded to include the ability to 
insert graphics files, so you can add images 
to your documents, and control their size 
and position. These commands can either 
be incorporated into a document and pro- 
cessed when it's printed, or they can be 
processed immediately. 

The other main addition is an ARexx 
interface, which allows you to issue any 
Protext command from an ARexx script. 
This means dial you could create entire 
documents from an ARexx script, and feed 
the output from another program to iliis. 

Protext is an excellent tool for dealing 
with words. It's fast and easy-to-use, with 
onlv a few minor glitches and the odd 
eccentricity. But when it comes to graphics 
it's nowhere near as powerful as Wordworth 
and Pinal Writer. Overall, if you want a pro- 
gram for writing and manipulating text, 
this is an excellent choice. 

How good is it in everyday use? This 
review and most of the reviews I've written 
in the past month have been written in 
Protext because it's a lot more flexible and 
powerful than the Mac word processor we 
usually use, • O

This new version has an extremely 
fast spelling checker and thesaurus 
operation. 

MANUAL 

Two well-written manuals introduce 
you to Protext and give you all the 
technical gen you will ever need. 

ACCESSIBILITY 

The program has its own unique way 
of working, but it is not too difficult 
to pick up. 



Protext can now incorporate graphics 
into documents with a fair degree of 
control, although it's not WYSIWYG. 



,7J"< 



Dearer than programs like Personal 
Write, but more powerful thanks to 
the built-in programming language. 



VERDICT 



** Protext 6 
extremely good at 
dealing with words, 
and it is flexible 
because of the way 
it is configurable 
through both the 
built-in programming 
language and the 
ARexx interface. "

On his travels through the Public 

Domain, Richard Baguley has come 

across all sorts of wonderful 

programs. This month he has 

brought back a selection of the 

finest games and utilities, a 

magazine and even a Japanese 

language program... 





This British empire/ 
Is burning down, 
We lie like ashes, 
On the ground, 
But given time, 
The ash will flame, 
The Working man, 
Will rise again.

Paula, For those of who haven'l ripped your Amiga 
apart yei. is the chip which deals with the musical 
jiggery pokery which makes the Amiga the Honk- 
ing machine it is. This disk contains the latesi 
musical creations by noted Amiga musician Raven. 
These vary from simple piano limes (Iv\) to 
lull-blown rave maslerpiet es ("Exhilarate**), .Ml of 
(lie compositions are ol .1 ven high quality, and if 
you have a 1 opy of OctaMKl) vou can load them in 
and dissect ihein.

KEW II U1054 

To say that having more hard disk space would be 

useful is .u\ understatement PC users have long 

enjoved the benefits of programs such as StnfkiT 
and Sii{in\ltnr, which use on-the— fly data compres- 
sion to squash programs and data. This process is 
invisible to the user, because ifs all done automat- 
ical!) by the program. All the user notices is .1 
slight slowdown 111 disk access speed as the data is 
compressed before writing it to disk or decom- 
pressed after reading it from the disk. 



Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, and th 
is one of them. There's no shooting, no laser powi 
ups, only a single spaceship flying through a serie 
of tunnels. Touch the sides, and you lose part of 
your shield. Once this runs out you're toast It 
sounds simple, until things start to speed up, with 
the ship moving faster and faster. If you survive 
this, other weird things such as flickering walls 
start appearing. Bonuses flash past at dizzying 
speed and you can grab by hitting the fire button. 
If you are wise enough to subscribe to Amiga 
format, you'll have got a copy of this excellent 
game on this month's Subscribers' Superdisk.

The XPK Package enables you to choose from a variety 
of different sorts of compression. 

This disk brings a similar process to any Amiga 
user with Workbench 2 or above and a hard disk, 
Ii works by adding a few libraries and a commodity 
LO your machine. A new disk icon is added to voui 

Workbench and anything which is copied to this 
disk is automatically and invisibly compressed. 

When vou run die program or load die data, ihe 
file is automatically decompressed. 

The type of compression is determined by the 
user from a choice of eight different types which 
are included on the disk. New types of compres- 
sion and upgrades to the existing one are easily 
installed, because each compression is held in a 
library file. You will find that different types of 
compression work best with different types of data, 
so some experimentation is needed lo get the best 
use of vour disk. 

There certainly don't seem to be anv prob- 
lems with the XPK Package, and I've quite happilv 
run a wide varietj of programs and read data from 
a disk compressed using this system. However, it 
should be approached with some caution, because 
if ihe compression fails, vou could lose some of 
your data and be unable to recover it.

ROAD 2 

MAGNETIC FIELDS 
GA123 

If, like me, you find the idea or driving a virtual car 
around a virtual track about as exciting as counting 
Skodas on the fast lane of the M1, you'll probably 
greet the release of another top view Public 
Domain racing game with a groan. 

Fortunately, your dismay would be misplaced. 
Road 2 Hell is a very good example of how to pro- 
gram a game of this type properly. It's fast gives 
you a good range of tracks and opponents and 
makes good use of any extra memory you have fit- 
ted to your Amiga. 

There is a choice of seven tracks which vary 
from fairly simple ovals to more complex affairs

You can race against nine Amiga-controlled oppo-

human player.

were that it ran extremely fast on an accelerated

Next time you're walking down Tokyo High Street try 
saying "Konnichi Wa" to everyone you meet. 

Given the current state of the economic world, 
learning at least a few basic Japanese phrases 
could be a good move. This program aims to teach 
phrases such as "Good morning" and "Thank 
you". These are presented in both written and spo- 
ken form, thanks to a series of samples held on 
the disk which are played back. Each of the 
phrases is also accompanied by a cutesy Japanese 
style figure acting out the phrase. 

Using the samples means that you can hear 
exactly how the phrases sound when spoken, but it 
also means that the author couldn't fit many 
examples on the disk. Anyway, it's a very well pre- 
sented introduction to the language, and even 
gives a list of further reading material if you want 
lo learn more.

Add commands and code to your programs with Dave 
Holloway's useful Licenceware disk Amtuition. 




AMTUITIOIU 

CENTRAL LICENCEWARE __ 

REGISTER CLR 33 

AMOS is undoubtedly an extremely powerful pro- 
gramming language, but the standard AMOS file 
requesters are not particularly easy to use. It's pos- 
sible to write your own code to generate 
requesters, but this can be a somewhat tiresome 
and time-consuming business. 

Fortunately, a very nice chap by the name of 
David Hollo-way has been thoughtful enough to do 
all this hard work for you. This Licenceware disk 
contains a number of commands and sample code 
which can be added to your programs, as well as a 
bank of images of the various gadgets which form 
Workbench 3 style requesters. 

There are several examples of code to gener- 
ate menus and requesters, and a very good tutorial 
which shows you how to go about programming 
your own. 




ORGANISED! 



TIL 



If your life is in a mess, this disk could help. It con- 
tains Organised! (a Filofax-style address book and 
diary), The Money Program (\ think you can work 
that one out) and Hoitse/nv, which you can use to 
build a database of the contents of your house for 
insurance purposes. So, if Mister Burglar calls 



If you need reminding how much money you haven't 
got The Money Program can do it in quite lurid detail. 

around, you can work our precisely how much you 
should claim from your insurance. Unfortunately, 
if you don't have any insurance this is likely to be a 
very depressing figure, and the program doesn't 
include any free contents cover. 

The Organised! electronic filofax has sections 
for a calendar, diary, address book and notebook. 
This could be a very useful program, and you can 
even switch between Organised! and Workbench 
with a couple of mouse clicks. 

The Money Program is a very easy to use per- 
sonal finance organiser which can present the 
data in a variety of ways, including a very red (and 
crushingly depressing) graph. £>

CYIMOST1C P0258 

Here's another collection of Next Generation Star 
Trek images rendered in Imagine 2 by Mark Plans 
(produced by Infinite Frontiers) and bai Led with 
an atmospheric track by Bjorn Lynne (better than 
the one from the first collection). Hoioderk 2issim-

between three cars, each representing a different 
machine: the others are the Mega CD and the 
Philips CDL No race at all really. Technical ques- 
tions are asked of the machines and the console 
without the spec drops out of the race. It's all ray- 
traced in :U) and is absolutely stunning, although 
unfortunately there's no sound. Requires 3.5Mb.

Would you like to see real perspective 3D calcu- 
lated dots? The eternal question. After diet king 
out this demo, the answer has to be yes. Not that 
the swirling dots are particularly spectacular but 
look OUI for those (ish (no, Vic Reeves hasn't 
joined Amiga /hrmtit). Swimming across the screen 
are some fantastic images of exotic fish, and then 
one ol them says: "There's a third world... a world

the 456 GT 2+2 (0-60 in 5.2 seconds. lK6mph top

tures in the Ferrari World magazine using DPttint

some are rather dull, particularly the one of the

THE MINI AGA 

CYNOSTIC P0076 

The first image on this slideshow is quite bizarre 
It's an excellent ray-traced picture, but what it is 
we shall never know. Imagine a spaceship made 
out of Smariies and Polos and... oh. never mind. 
But there is some quality here with fine images of 
a bedroom, a kitchen and a hamburger. And a 
robot. Al! right, it doesn't sound thai exciting but 
artist Karl Moore has produced a decent AGA col- 
lection and there's also a demonic backing track. 




What a delightful pine-effect chest of drawers with 
amtching desk and wardrobe. Feel the quality.

dressing room before taking the podium. After 
injecting himself, he enters stage left and slays a

tar riff, this is a humorous, but gruesome, anim 
and certainly not for the squeamish.

ANIM 




Suicide Man just wouldn't let it lie and returns to finish 
the job. Check out the folk casually applauding him. 

Still wealing the same brown jacket and jeans. 
Suicide Man returns for another go at death. 
Sporting a fine facial scar, he exits his hut at the 
edge of a rot k\ crevice to die applause of the gath- 
ered throng and stands with his back to the cliff. 

Fo ensure that things don't go horribly wrong 
and he lives. Suicide Man blows his head off with a 
revolver before toppling off the edge, dismantling 
rocks in the process which land on top of him. 
Rapturous applause ensues at the bottom of the 
cliff by the burger van. Hurrah! Avoid if you're of 
a nervous disposition, but Paul Henderson has 
excelled himself here. 

Editor's note; If vou intend to commit suicide 
after viewing this, please renew vour subscription 
beforehand. 



DEMO 



TROJANS 
TECHNO 
TRACKS 2 

CYIVJOSTIC (DISK 00570) 

The sound of sirens signals the entrance of this 
month's techno beat. Red Alert, it's another 
Scandinavian raw techno demo. Flying cubes. 
[(■•\rhedelic backgrounds, the obligatory swirling 
glen/ vectors, vep. it's all in here. And ihen the 
word 'A 12(H)' appears, and 1 was playing the demo 
on an A500. Quite why 'A 12(H)' makes an appear- 
ance remains a mvsterv because the only other 
word to appear is Techno'. 

There are some nice effects here, but it's 
rather repetitive although the track is one of the 
better examples in a dark and bro*>ding sort of 
way. Recommended for those with a passionate 
love for this tvpe of thing.

And you join us as Richard Baguley peeps around the 
comer to witness Julie Tolley's tragic demise. 




Oh joy. The expression on the referee's face is the 
finest thing yet seen on the pages of Demo Zone. 

An interesting, if somewhat tasteless collection 
of black and white line drawings here and as the 
title suggests, they are dedicated to the subject of 
death (popular subject this month). And highly 
amusing they are too, well, most of them. Some 
30 images are included here from Boris and Cecil 
of Stress and though not technically brilliant 
they certainly tickle in the right places. Witness 
the woman electricuted at the computer, the man 
eaten at the zoo and the poor bloke squashed by 
an ice brick in his igloo. Sick, side-splitting fun. 




A thumping beat with the chant of 'Red Alert' and a 
visual effect of a Norwich City shirt ensure success.

Rtcoh t have used their expertise to produce a 'first' in laser printers* the 
LP1200 with FLASH ROM. HP LaserJet tf/ 1M compatible, the LP120Q 
employs industry proven laser technology which, unlike LED printers, 
uses a laser light source to produce the most accurate and intense 
printed images at a range of print resolutions up to 400dpi. A fast 
efficient processor and engtne t plus a straight paper path design 
allows printing at a full 6 pages per minute. The 2Mb RAM version 
prints a full A4 page of text or graphics at 300dpi Using standard 
resident fonts and the alternate controller firmware supplied, it 
can also pnnt an A4 page of text or A5 page of graphics at 
400dpi and. using the Windows driver supplied, an 
A4 page of text

UNIVERSAL FEEDER 

TOP TRAY (OPTIONAL EXTRAI 

The 4Mb RAM version can pnnt a 

full A4 page of graphics at 400 dpi and makes 

full use of the LP1200's 400 dpi printing capabilities, such 

as using Microsoft Windows fonts. Unique additional standard 

features include FLASH ROM 'future proof technology and LAYOUT - a 

powerful document description language. The LP1200's unique internal 

FLASH ROM, which holds the printer controller firmware, can easily be 

updated as new developments in technology occur. This protects the 

investment you make in buying a Ricoh LP1200. Other manufacturers 

would require you to buy a new printer! Internal FLASH ROM and 

industry standard FLASH ROM PCMCIA cards can also be used to 

permanently store fonts, macros, graphics and extra emulations. Again, 

unlike the competition, the LP1200 includes LAYOUT, a powerful and 

intuitive document descnption language as 

standard. This offers unique opportunities to 

develop custom made printing systems. 

Forms and document templates can be 

designed complete with logos and stored 

electronically in the LP1200's FLASH ROM. 

alleviating the need for pre-printed forms! 

The LP1200 comes with a 100 sheet A4 
paper tray as standard. An optional universal 
feeder automatically feeds up to 150 sheets 
of paper (up to 169gsm), 15 envelopes, 
transparencies and labels.

CD FORMAT f AGAIN) 

Mr N Taylor. Winchester. Hants 




Although the CDTV is a bit old. it still sees active service 
in many a user's set-up. 



I own a CDTV. Before that 1 had C64 and didn't 
own a CD player. I have added a disk drive and 
keyboard and one megabyte chip RAM. 

I know the CDTV has been knocked heavily in 
all the niags on a regular basis, but for me it has 
see a great opportunity to expand into the world 
of CD-ROM. Amiga software, CD+G, and so on. 

From things I have read I feel it must be some- 
how possible to enable to CDTV to run, for 
example, CD-ROMs written for the Macintosh and 
also Kodak photoCDs. 1 would be extremely grate- 
ful if you could help. 

The (IDTV is quite an excellent device, especially 
,n the low prices you can now pick ihem up for, As 
an Amiga ii is comparable to (he !.:'> A500, so n 
isn't capable of running a lot of the new software. 
It is also a little difficult to expand, although 
Calculus do a range <»i peripherals for it. Man) 
people use CDTY's networked to other Ainigav 

The majority of CO-ROM drives conform to 
the ISO9660 standard, which means that devices 
made for the PC or the Macintosh or even dx* 



Photo CD can all read files directly from these 
disks. Unfortunately this doesn't mean you can 
run the same programs. PCs can't run Macintosh 
or Amiga software just because they can read the 
files from the CD, and so it goes for all the differ- 
ent CD machines. If you had an audio CD player 
von wouldn't expect it to run PC software. 

You can however access the files from these 
disks, so if you had a PC CD full of graphics files 
you would be able to load them into Amiga pro- 
grams su< h as ADI*ro.

WING 

Mr Wade Hampton. Southampton 
With regard to the letter from Adrian Bernascone 
(AF Christmas '93) in which he is having trouble 
installing Wings to his hard drive, I also had this 
problem. To solve it permanenUy goes like this. 
First, work only from copies, not the originals. 

1. Boot up with Workbench as per normal, then 
insert Wings Reel 2 Open a shell and type 

CD DFO: 

assuming the disk is in the internal drive. 

2. You will now see the prompt displaying this: 
"Reel 2>" 

3. Type Ed hdinstall and press enter. This will 
open up a screen containing all the script for hard 
drive installation. Al the lop, change "reel 2: 
C/MakeDir Ram/T" to Reel 2: C/MakDir 
Fokkers (or whatever you like). 

4. Then delete completely (by pressing Ctrl-B) the 
line below which says "Reel 2: C/ Assign T: 
RAM:T" 

5. Press Esc then x then Enter (this will save your 
edited script back to floppy). 

6. Exit shell back to Workbench. Click on "Reel 2 M 
then click on the "HDInstalf*. icon, the program 
should install perfectly.

IF YOU HAVE A QUERY... 



Nick Vcttch 



At Amiga Format 
we aim to answer . 
many questions as 
we possibly can 
every month, and 
hopefully to sort out 
all your problems. 
Of course there are 
always more ques- 
tions than answers, 
so we have to 
prioritise queries 
according to the 
following factors: 



• Frequency. If a lot of people seem to be 
having problems with their Supersonic KY3000 
printers then we will print one letter and the 
definitive answer, encompassing all the most 
frequently posed problems. 

• Difficulty If the problem is actually some- 
thing which only someone with some insider 
technical knowledge would be able to solve, it Is 
more likely to be answered in these pages than a 
problem which arises simply because you haven't 
read the necessary documentation. 

• Impact. Quite simply, a question which 
involves you not being able to use your machine 
or some peripheral or software at all will be given 
a higher priority over a difficulty which is little 
more than a slight inconvenience. 

Unlike some magazines we won't just concentrate 
on the areas of expertise we are most familiar 
with, we will take on any problem (as long as 
there is an Amiga involved in ft). We have even 
enlisted the help of Commodore's Chief Engineer 
for those particularly tricky questions. As you can 
understand, we do get a lot of questions. If you 
want to get yours noticed, here are a few tips: 



From Mark Cole, Basingstoke, Hants 
Can you please try to sort out this hardware prob- 
lem for me, as I've been trying for weeks, and I'm 
not getting anywhere. My ASOO has a CSA-MMR 
25MHz accelerator, a 4Mb memory expansion 
board, and many add-on peripherals.

Never use Low Level Format on mn IDE drive, but it is a 
final resort if your SCSI has gone down. 



The problem is my hard drive. It is a 500Mb 
SCSI unit, and has been in service for over two 
years. But lately, on boot-up, it has been display- 
ing the message: "Volume DHO Read/Write Error." 

I backed up nearly all of the data I could, and 
reformatted. Using Quarterback Tools, I ran a 
repair on the drive, but all I am getting is the mes- 
sage. "VERY SERIOUS ERROR, DHO HAS BAD 
BIT-MAPPED KEY HEADER." I can't seem to elimi- 
nate the problem whatsoever. 

Your hard drive is certainly in a bad way. As His a 
SCSI mechanism, it may not be beyond repair yet 
though. It may be necessary to perform a low level 
format on your drive, presumably it either came 
with an installation utility or you have a copy of 
HDToolbox. Use this to perform a low-level format 
on the disk whilst crossing your fingers and hop- 
ing for the best You will then have to reformat 
the disk to AmigaDOS. tt is probably best to do 
this from within Quarterback Tools. Good luck. 



i Be concise. 

• Detail as best you can the actual problem. 

• Where applicable, describe the sequence of 
events that caused the problem. 

• Give details of the equipment you are using 
(including which version of Workbench you an 
using and which model of Amiga you have). 

• Make sure your question is relevant and 
wouldn't be more easily solved by the dealer you 
bought the goods from. 

DONT 

• Tell us all about your aunty Ethel for three 
pages and then explain your problem. 

• Write in wfth questions like "I added a hard- 
drive to my machine and it doesn't work - what 
should I do". (Which machine? Which drive?) 

• Send an SAE expecting a personal reply. 
The chances are extremely slim. 

Please bear these points in mind and remember 
that we are trying our best to help you.

Software emulators are slow, but can be useful for run- 
ning small utilities. 

In the PD section of AF I saw some PC Emulator 
Softwares, that is PC Task* costing around £40 
which is a bit cheaper than the bridgeboard emula- 
tors. Are the software versions worth it? What are 
their limitations when used with PC programs such 
as WordPerfect 5-/? What functions can they not 
emulate or emulate badly? Is it worth getting if I 
just want to use it for basic word processing? 

I own an Amiga 1200, but my course work 
requires me to word process with PC standard 
software- I don't have the dosh to buv a PC system, 
even if I had the dosh 1 still wouldn't. I would be 
very chuffed if you would answer these questions. 

Software emulators, like I J (' Task (the commercial 
version of which was reviewed in issue 52) usually 
work fairly well with non-intensive programs such 
as word processors. Their major Haws are speed (it 
is going to be about four limes slowei than a hard- 
ware emulator), displav compatibility (suit ware 
which runs only on SVGA may not work) and 
memory usage (software is not able to map all 
Amiga memory let be used by the PC (asks). 

I wouldn't bother with an emulator; \ou would 
be much better off with a word processor that can 
export PC compatible files. You can even get 
W'tiiii/Wfrrt 4. 1 for the Amiga, which would be com- 
patible with the Wnrdperfrct vim are using on the 
PC. You can transfer the files across easih using 
( irossDOS. It ma\ be worth getting something like 



I

How can I print out a directory of my disk 
using the shell? 

The easiest way is to just use Amiga DOS redi- 
1 rection to send the output directly to the 
printer. File redirection Is very simple to use. For 
example, rf you want a list of all the files in your 
libs directory you would type: 

dir >prti libat 

The ">" indicates a redirection and is followed by 
the device that the output is to 90 to. You can 
use this with any Amiga command (but it is not 
always useful to do so) and you can redirect to 
files as well as devices. For example: 

list >RAM:file C: 

will create a new file in your RAM: directory 
which contains a list of all your C commands. 



PC Task as well, if you can spare the cash, as it is 
particularly useful if you have a hard disk. 



From: Darren F Bawdeit Dot/caster. S Yorks 
I recendy purchased Final Copy II, lo be used in 
conjunction with a standard unexpanded 1 Mb 
A600. HP Deskjet 510 bubblejet printer, and 
Cum ana external drive. 

Problems occurred when attempting to print 
documents... The printer would randomly spit out 
blank pages, ignore graphics, ignore font changes, 
and printing documents turned out to be as fruit- 
ful as a not verv fruitful thing. 

Having ploughed through what would seem 
like the world's entire stock of printer drivers /PD 
Printer Driver Creation ulils, the answer lay in the 
amount of memory available to documents once 
Final Copy has had its chunk. I have found that 
upon loading, documents have to be squeezed into 
about 170Kb of RAM. This is quite a large chunk 
of memory, and most documents will fit. but when 
printing, the A600 needs a little more memory to 
perform the necessary print calculations. 

I have found that adopting the following strat- 
egy overcomes most print problems, please note 



I have heard there is a shortcut for deleting 
all the teat in a requester gadget. What is ft? 

Holding down the left Amiga key and press 
1 ing 'X' will delete all the text in the gadget 

\ I am having a bit of difficulty installing some 
software. I have set up assigns, but I think 
that the software Is still looking for something 
that is stopping it from running properly. What 
can I do? 

Check out the in-depth explanation in the 
1 panel on page 154 If it is a file that is miss- 
ing then it may be difficult to get the softyware 
to run properly. You should get hold of the share- 
ware program Snoop Dos, which will be able to 
tell you what files the software is looking for and 
where it is looking for them. 



though, that users should be working the COPIES 
of Final Copy II and not original disks. They must 
also ensure that thev have selected the correct 
printer driver, or one that is compatible. 

1. When in the document creation/edit screen, go 
to the PROJECT menu, select the PREFER- 
ENCES/START UP option. Then set the SCREEN 
TYPE to "USE WORKBENCH". Ensure that the 
default number of screen colours is set to four. 
Click on the SAVE button to ensure that your 
changes are stored on the System disk. 

2. Before printing, to capture a little more memory 
for the machine to work with, it is possible to use 
the sizing gadget (in the bottom right hand corner 
of the screen) to effectively shrink the edit screen. 
It can be shrunk lo about one fifth of the total 
screen height. After downsizing the screen, hold 
down the right mouse button, enter the PRO- 
JECT/PRINT menu and print the document as 
required. After the document has printed, simply 
use the sizing gadget again to restore the screen to 
it's original full height. 

3. Another handy little tip for grabbing a bit more 
RAM is to use the sizing gadget (in the bottom 
right-hand corner of the screen) to down size the 
edit screen, so that Workbench is visible beneath.

I am the proud owner of a A500+ with 2Mb memory 
and an external drive, and want to enter the world 
of PD music demos (Hardcore). My mate does the 
music and I do the graphics. I have exhausted what 
DPaint 3 has to offer and am looking to buy equip- 
ment to boost my options. 

1) What could a Rocgen plus offer me? 

2) What could a Rockey offer me? 

3) Would you advise me to buy them? 

4) I wish to add more memory to my 2Mb Amiga. Is 
there a RAM expansion available with an accelera- 
tor built in that works with a A500+? 

5) I tried to record animations off my Amiga, but 
when I play them back they are all fuzzy. Do I need 
a special connection to do this? 

6) I wish to take Film/Video camera footage, and 
feed them Into my Amiga and after them, What 
equipment would I need? 

tf you had road me tost issue of Amiga Format you 
will know all about genlocks and chromakeys. A 
genlock is a device which allows you to overlay 



computer graphics over live video. A chromakey 
unit enables live video to be placed on top of corn- 
purer graphics, These devices are great tor produc- 
ing videos, but are of no use for creating demos 
that you can circulate on the PD scene. However, it 
you are into creating video they are excellent 

The ea si e s t way to add more memory to an 
ASOO is via the expansion port. There are a couple 
of devices, such as the SupraRAM expansion which 
will add 2,4 or 8Mb this way. Supra also produce an 
accelerator for the expansion port. Try first 
Computer Centre on 0S32 3 19444, 

The tuny recording sounds like you are not get- 
ting the best signal from your Amiga. A video that 
will take RGB Is rare indeed, but the modulator out- 
put from the A520 unit is not really up to being 
taped. Try using the composite output (on the side 
of the modulator), your video deck should have a 
phono input for composite video signals. 

To generate computer graphics from video 
images you will need a digitiser like the Vidl24 unit 
reviewed last Issue.

Click on the Workbench drag bar so that it is in 
operation, then click on the window close gadget 
for the FC-PROGRAM window. This will release 
another wedge of RAM. If you don't believe me, 
check out the Workbench status bar (at the top of 
the screen)... Just watch the Graphis Memory fig- 
ure jump up! 

4. One last thing. If you simply want a draft copy 
of your document, and not the end result, use the 
minimum possible print resolution. For example, 
for draft copies of documents. I use print resolu- 
tion 3 - 150 x 150 dpi, for the final version, I use 
print resolution 4 - 300 x300 dpi. Why? Well, the 
less the resolution and therefore, the print quality 
of the document, the faster the printing and the 
less memory required - and vice-versa. 

I hope these tips are of some use to someone. 
Had final Copy IPs documentation been half as 
good as the software itself, quite a few of my prob- 
lems would have been easily solved. Sort it 
Softwood and learn something from HiSoft - 
I purchased the Dei>pac 3 assembler and was pleas- 
antly surprised to find an excellent suite of 
programs, faultless documentation and an excel- 
lent support service! 

Once again, thanks for your solution to this prob- 
lem. Here at Amiga Format we may have used every 
piece of software available, but sometimes these 
problems do not come to light during testing.

You should make sure that the correct keyboard driver is 
stored on your Workbench disk. 

I bought my A1200 two months ago and have had 
problems with the keys. When I press shift and 2 I 
get a (a symbol not a " symbol as the keyboard 
would have me believe, when I press shift and the 
(" key I get a C symbol, when I press shift and 3 I 
get a hash symbol, and I can't find a ±. I had a look 
at the key show program included on my extras 
disk and it would have me believe that the actual 
keyboard keys have been printed wrong and that a 
+ symbol does not exist on the keyboard. Please 
help as I need to use a + symbol. 

Your Amiga is working perfectly, but you haven't 
installed the correct keymap for use with your 
machine. In Workbench 3 this is done with the 
Locale and Input programs. Locale should be set so 
[hat your country is United Kingdom and your lan- 
guage is English. 

In the Input program, you should set the key- 
board type to British. In order for this to work you 
will have to have the correct keymap in your 
I)evs:keyinaps drawer (which should have been 
done when you first ran Workbench. If British 
doesn't come up as an option, you will have to 
copy this tile across from the Storage disk to your 
Workbench disk. The symbol you are looking for is 
obtained by using Alt and Z. 



LEW'S CORNER

Lew Egge

I cannot get a clock to appear by 
adding the clock command to 
the startup sequence. The 
startup sequence just stops. 
Also, why do I get different tool 
type settings If I access it 
through Workbench? Why does 



the Clock work from the shell 
but not he CLI ? 

2.0 and higher, you 
iou/d never edit your startup- 
uence unless absolutely 
essary. Instead use either the 
Bstartup drawer, or the s:user 
startup script (create it if it 
»es not exist yet). If you wish 
to drag a Workbench tool such 
as Clock into the WBstart-up 
drawer, first use the Workbench 
Icon menu "information " menu 
selection to add the following 
tooltype to the clock icon: 

DONOTWAIT. 

Then drag the clock into the 
WBstartup drawer. The DONOT- 
WAIT tooltype will tell 
Workbench to start this program 
on reboot and not wait for it to 
exit If you would rather start 
the dock from the s:user- 
startup, edit s:user-startup and 
enter the line: RUN>ML: sys: util- 
ities/Clock. If you wish to control 
the placement and mode of the 



clock when starting it from a 
shell or script command line, you 
will need to pass the appropri- 
ate command line arguments on 
the same line. Most commands 
only parse icon Tooltypes when 
a tool is started from 
Workbench. Tool types are the 
Workbench method for passing 
options Consult your Amiga sys- 
tem software manual for the 
command line arguments of the 
dock command. You can atso 
type CLOCK ? 

In a command line to see the 
possible arguments. One exam- 
ple of starting the clock with W 
optional arguments would be: 
Run>NILSys: Utilities/Clock sec- 
onds top-40 left-40 

As for why Clock will start 
from a shell but not from a CU 
it is likely that the old CLI com- 
mand does not have access to 
the standard command paths set 
Up in the startup sequence, and 
therefore cannot find the dock 
command. 



USE 

From: Anthony Robinson, Basingstoke, Hants 
I recently bought a Citizen 200 colour printer to go 
with my A500 plus computer. When I doodle on 
Deluxe Paint 3, though, my drawings come out as a 
series of numbers and dots. Even if my drawing is 
simple, like a stick man. it comes out the same. 

Also on PenPal my printer decides to jumble 
the words about and put big gaps in. Sometimes 
when I use PenPal and I enlarge the word it prints 
it out smaller. Please could you help me. 

It is a little difficult to say, but I think your prob- 
lem is that you haven't set up your printer driver 
properly. If you are only getting numbers you try- 
to print out graphics then you are probably using 
the generic driver. This isn't capable of outputting 
graphics. You want to change the preferences to 
the correct printer driver for your Citizen printer. 

If you don't have a specific one you can use 
the EpsonX driver, as the Citizen is Epson compat- 
ible. As I don't know which version of Workbench 
you are using il is difficult to tell you how to 
set this up correctly. In any case it is quite easy. Just 
copy the correct driver on to your Workbench 
disk into the "Devs:priniers" drawer. Then run 
the Preferences/printer program and select the 
iich driver, 



I have heard from a Bulletin Board, that some- 
one is selling new Connor 2.5-inch IDE 84Mb 
drives, their asking about £120 for them, which is 
the best so far. (the message says that they are 
DEC badged, what is this, something to look for?) 
There was another message that says Seagate's are 
a bit slow and that Connor drives are not recom- 
mended by Commodore, but there is also a 
Western Digital 2.5-inch IDE 85Mb drive going for 
£170. I've never come across the brand, are they 
any good? 

I'm sorry if this that this is a very long-winded 
letter, I hope you can see that I need help! 

Ther are three major manufacturers of hard drives 
- Seagate. Western Digital and Connor - all of 
their hard drives will work fine with the A1200. 
There is nothing wrong with Connor mechanisms. 
The only real difference between most mecha- 
nisms is their speed, and there isn't that much 
variation on an IDE drive anywav. Many companies 
badged the hard drives when they install them on 
a machine - DEC is just one of them. 

An interesting anomallv at the moment is that 
there is a shortage of smaller drives (80~120Mb) so 
they are quite difficult to obtain - sometimes it can 
be cheaper to install a 150Mb mechanism. Try call- 
ing Mediasource (0247 471882) orTriLogic (0274 
691115) for the best deals. 



Mr Soni Drew, Colchester, Essex 
Here we have another of those letters asking about 
expanding the A1200. I am very interested, (very, 
very interested) in finding an Accelerator/ RAM 
upgrade and a Hard Drive. 

I know Amiga Format has written issue's on 
this subject, especially with the "Good Hardware 
Guide" but I have found even more questions 
which are stopping me from committing myself to 
spending money. 

Every issue of Amiga Format and Amiga Power I 
buy, I thumb through to the adverts straight away, 
(but don't worry, that's not the only reason for 
buying), I always go back and start reading from 
the beginning, time and time again and I search 
them, with my fluorescent marker, picking out the 
hardware on my list. 



Andrew Gauton, Warrington, Cheshire 
I have an A1200 with Wordworth 2 and ProPage 4.0 
installed on my hard drive. I also have DFO: set to 
PCO: to recognise PC formatted disks. I have 
problems importing text from WordWorth 2 into 
ProPage 4.0. I load ProPage, create a page, create a 
box, click on the text icon, select Preferences: 
Text Format and choose text filter as WordWorth. 
Then I select Project: Import Text and try to 
import a piece of saved text. The file loads but 
nothing appears on screen. I've tried selecting dif- 
ferent Text Filters in ProPage, and saved the text 
in WordWorth under various formats (ASCII, nor- 
mal, IFF, WordPerfect) but text still won't import.

WordPerfect into Timeworks' Publisher 3 (DTP) on

- if 



die PC I have to add ".doc" on to the Tile name 
when saving to get il lo import. Do I need to do 
something like this on the Amiga? 

I am thinking of buying an Amiga CD** 2 . Will 
there be a lead to connect this to my A 1200? 
Calculus said that a lead will be out after 
Christmas. If true, lo which port will il conned? I 
hope it won't use the trapdoor (like CD-ROM 
drive) as I plan to buy a RAM expansion. 

It seems ili.u your version ol ProPagr is winking

into ihe cop) buffer. This means ii doesn'i appear 
directly on screen. You will haw to < lit k in the box 
where VOU waul ihe lexl lo go and press ihe paste 
key (Fl ). then the text will How into the box 

I'm not sine enlhch what J/OU mean by "a lead 

thai will conned the CD 32 to the A.1200'. If you 
mean a device that will allow the A1200 to use the 
CI) :t - as a CD-ROM drive, it is theoretically possi- 
ble, bin such a device does not yel exist. Details 
about the Microbotics' CD 32 expansion (which will 
add pons for a keyboard ,uu\ floppy drive) are not 
yei finalised so whether it N possible to use Pa me I 
or not is difficult to say. 



James Pratt, Ha mm ers m ith, London 
I have two Amigas (well, to be more exact I have 
one Amiga and die occasional loan of another) and 
1 am trying to link them together. I know that the 
device name for the serial port is SER: and I have 
tried copying files and text through it, but so far to 
no avail. 

How exactly do I connect up the two machines 
and how do 1 transfer data using the Shell? 1 am 
slightly worried because I thought this would be 
something terribly easy to do. It seems a lot easier 
to network other machines like Macintoshs and PC 
compatibles together. 

On a connected point. I am thinking about get- 
ting a CD-ROM drive for the Amiga, but I have 
heard Uiat it is possible lo connect a CDTV up lo 
an Amiga and use a network to control il. 

Ii is not advisable to use the shell to transfer data 

between machines, you are much better oil using 
some corams software. You can change the 
Workbench serial defaults l>\ running the Serial 
program in Preferences. 

If you warn to network two machines together 
ii is much better i«» use the I'D Parnei program, 

Which < an also enable you to treat the CI) TV as a 

< D-R< >M drive. Pick it up at any good PD library, 
bill vou will need to make a table. 

And thai brings us to the end of yet another

on your Amiga's hard driva. Commodore have created 



Not all software comes with an install pro- 
gram, which Is very annoying for those of us 
with hard drives. 

| A great deal of software which doesn't 
i include an install program can still be installed 
on a hard disk. Sometimes this is as simple as copy- 
ing all the files across. 

i Commodore have made a custom install pro- 
1 gram available which uses a very simple 
interface which just requires the user to click on 
the occasional button. There is even a PD adven- 
ture written for the Installer software. 

When software looks for files on a particular 
disk it usually refers to it by name. This means 
that you can use the CU Assign command to redi- 
rect any file access. For example, if your software 
is constantly looking for a disk called "Files" when 
all the files from that disk are actually installed on 
your hard disk in a drawer called "application" you 
could simply enter a command like this: 

Assign Piles: DhO: Application 

and the Amiga would then look in that drawer 
every time a program asked for the files disk. 

You can assign devices as well. If your soft- 
1 ware is expecting a disk in the internal drive 
when actually the data is on hard disk, you can 
redirect the path using the command: 

Assign DPO: CfaO: application 

This usually works with games quite well. 



*C None of the assign commands will work if the 



ppiication closes Workbench. This doesn't 
often happen with "serious" applications, but it 
does with games. To be Installed on a hard drive, 
software has to be OS legal and not shut down the 
operating system while it is running. 

Some program s will also require libraries or 
fonts. As a rule of thumb. If the original disk 
you an trying to install has directories called 
"libs", "devs" or "fonts" you should copy the con- 
tents of these across to the Workbench default 
paths (for example Copy df0:libs/«? libs: ). 

It is possible to copy these system files 
_ ' straight over into another directory and 
append the paths that AmigaOOS searches on. For 
example, you could copy over libraries into 
another libs: partition and enter the command: 

Assign libs: dhO:Nevstuff /libraries add 
This will mean that the operating system will 
check in the normal libs directory and the new one 

that you have just added 

It is best to keep all the libraries, devs, fonts 
and other system files actually in the c orre ct 
Workbench drawers rf you can help it Assigns take 
up extra memory and if used too much actually 
slow your machine a bit The only thing you should 
avoid is ever replacing the ^startup-sequence" 
fUe, 9% this controls your Amiga as it Is booting 
Into Workbench.

THIS PAGE DELVES a little deeper into 
ihe wonders of Workbench. After last month, 
you've probably got a hideous looking 
Workbench, maybe an obscene mouse pointer, 
and that's about it. Now it's time lo slop spoon 
feeding you, and get serious! 

Whenever you switch off your Amiga it forgets 
everything it was doing. The chips inside your 
machine run on electricity — no juice, no go. If you 
want to store information permanently, you have 
to create it with a suitable program - for instance, 
a word processor if you wanted to write a letter. 

Imagine you have got the word processor pro- 
gram up and running, you've written your letter, 
but your printer isn't plugged in. What you have- 
to do is Save the letter (the information) on to a 
disk. Then you can turn off your Amiga, plug in 
your printer, turn everything on, get the word pro- 
cessor back up, and load the letter back in. Then 
you could print it out. If you just plugged in the 
printer without switching off, then the part of your 
Amiga that communicates with the printer - the 
Interface -would probably need replacing. 

So disks are very useful things - they let you 
permanently record information. Permanent up 
to a point, mind you. Any disk can be corrupted. 
The only way to get around that is to have lots of 
copies of important files - so-called back-up disks. 

At present there are three kinds of disk you 
can use on the A600, A 1200, and A4000. These are 
floppy, hard and credit card disks (PCMCIA - an 
optional extra with the A4000). They go up in 
expense, and down in operating speed. PCMCIA 
cards are currently so expensive that they are usu- 
ally just used as memory expansions (see the 
Prepcard utility in your manual). 




nom 





Last month Pat McDonald took you step-by-step around workbench. This 

month, in part two of our continuing series to help you get the most out 

of your Amiga, he explains how hard and floppy disks are organised, and 

how to use Workbench to carry out some useful disk operations. 



MOW TO USE Fl 



REQUES 



The name of the file 
requester This file 
requester is from 
Protext, the word pro- 
cessor program I used 
to write this tutorial. 



Protext - Select file 



The listing of all 
files in the current 
directory. 




The pathname. This is 
the name of a disk, 
followed by a colon (:) 
then any directories, 
separated by slashes 
(/). Protext was look- 
ing at the Text direct- 
ory in the Protext 
directory of a disk 
called Ptay (my hard 
disk). Directory and 
Drawer are the same - 
an isolated area or 
folder for keeping dif- 
ferent programs and 
projects separate.

^PUyiprotext/TEXT 



The filename. This is 
currently empty 
because I haven't 
clicked on a filename 
or typed one into the 
box. 






OK 



Disks Parent I Cancel 




Click on the up and 
down arrows to sort 
the directory in alpha* 

betical order. 



Cancel will abort the 
file requester so you 
won't load or save. 



Rather than double 
click on a filename, 
you can click once 
and then on this 
button to open it. 
A bit pointless. 



i 



This button brings up a list 
of all disks that are available 
to the Amiga. Handy for 
making the file requester 
point at a different disk to 
the one it's looking at. 



Parent will take you 
back up a directory. 
If I clicked on this a 
listing of the 
Protext directory 
would appear. 



File requesters are the parts of a program which let you select which project you want to edit load or 
save. A project is a data file, such as a letter, a picture or a sound. A program is the set of computer 
instructions to actually let you edit data. That is why you bought an Amiga, isn't it? To play the odd 
game and be creative on? Well, if not then knowing how to use a file requester is still a useful skill. 
Not all file requesters are the same - some programs use one, some use another. This is the ASL 
file requester which is most commonly used on Workbench 2 programs. Other ones look a bit different 
but they all do the same job - they request you to select a file to work on. They're dead handy at 
checking out what's on a disk without going back to Workbench. 



I know I said that we'd only cover Workbench 2 and 
3 in these tutorials, but I'm going to make an excep- 
tion in this case because if you have an older Amiga 
with Workbench 1.3 or earlier, then copying files 
using Workbench is very tricky. 

Such versions of Workbench don't have a Show/ 
All Files option on the window menu - they don't 
even have a window menu. This means that if a file 
doesn't have an icon (a file with the same name end- 
ing in ".info") then Workbench can't display it so 
you can't click and drag it where you want it to. 

So, you have to double click on the Shell and 
type in AmigaDOS commands to copy files from 
place to place. All right you don't have to do this - 
there are programs such as SID and Directory Opus, 
which give a point-and-click control panel, but you 
don't get such a program with Workbench. 

Before I go on, you do know what a pathname 
is? If not check the panel on file requesters. Once 
you've got the idea of where a disk name, directory 
and file name point to, you're ready to proceed. 




First of all, load Workbench and then double 
click on the Shell icon. If you can't see the Shell 
icon straight away, if s usually to be found In the 
System drawer. A window will now appear, con- 
taining a prompt for you to type. Whether you use 
upper or lower case (big and little) letters makes 
absolutely no difference to the Amiga - It thinks 
that a file called "FRED" is exactly the same as a 
file called "fred". 



To copy a file, type "Copy" then a space. Then 
_ put in the word "From" then a space. AmigaDOS 
uses the spaces to find the gaps between com- 
mands. Put in the full existing pathname of the file 
you want to copy, then a space. Put the word "To" 
and a space. Put the full path of where you want the 
file(s) to go and a space. Finally, if you are copying 
more than one file, put the word "All" at the end. 
Lastly, hit the Return key.

a blank disk.

All Amigas come with at least one floppy disk drive. 
Having two is a distinct advantage when you use 
Workbench, because it means you can leave the 
Workbench disk in one drive and swap disks in the 
other. As you use a Workbench operation, the 
Amiga reads how to do it from the Workbench disk. 
That's why it keeps asking for it if you take it out. 
The point is that you can swap disks with a floppy 
disk drive, and exchange information between com- 
puters. Try doing that with a Segtendo! 

A hard disk can't be taken out of its casing - it's 
vacuum sealed. The internal parts are precision 
made, resulting in a near perfect working environ- 
ment. Hard drives can read and write information 
much faster than a floppy disk drive and can store 
much more information, so it can store all of your 

Workbench disks, all of your useful programs and still have loads of space for your own creations and 
the odd game or two, although many arcade-style games do not install to hard drive. Hard drives are a 
luxury for most people, but rf you get serious about your Amiga, they're well worth the money.

3) Now just click and drag the icons to where 
you want them. Easy! 



There should be a fourth type, and that is CD- 
ROM - computer information stored on standard 

music CDs. Although incredibly cheap to make, 
CD-ROMs have two problems. You can't record on 
lo ilu- CDs .n home, and creating a CD-ROM pro- 
gram that uses the huge storage potential is 
proving to he very lime-consuming. 

Floppy and hard disks work in roughlv the 
same way, The information is stored as a set of ons 
and oils on the surface of the circular disk, which 
can Ik- read with a sensor. This sensor can nunc 
Uick and forth across the surface of the disk, bin it 
always jumps the same amount - it moves in steps 

of a certain size. 

If \ou remember thai the sensor can only 
move in sieps from the edge of the spinning disk 
inwards the centre and back again, then you will 
realise that the information is stored in concentric 
rings or tracks, like the rings in a tree trunk. They 
are not like die grooves on a vinyl music record, 
which spiral in towards ihe centre. The head 
moves lo the right track, the disk spins, and the 
information gets written or read. 

The following tutorial doesn't cover most 
games on floppy disks. Such programs don't work 
with Workbench - Workbench can't understand 
games disks. There are some exceptions to this, 
bul it you were hoping to use Workbench to gel 
infinite lives on Cannon Fodder, forget it. 

Tile tracks of a disk are split into three areas - 
the luMiiblock. the directory, and the actual stor- 



age areas where the information goes. Each indi- 
vidual bloc k ol information is i ailed a Tile. 

The DOOtblCM k is a Special track thai says what 

filing system the disk uses and wheihei or not the 
disk can Boot Such a disk can be inserted Into an 

\miga and will automatically start working without 
needing Workbench. 

The director) area holds a map showing 
when- all the information is on a disk. Although 
you would expect the Amiga to neallv put down- 
files, instead il lends to throw ihem all over the 
disk. A file is an individual list of information - it 
could be a letter, a picture, or a program t«» pro- 
duce some information, or il could be an icon - 
renumber those from lasl month? 

What determines bow the directory ties up 
wiil» where the files are is called the Filing System. 

There are three dillerenl ivpes with Workbench 3; 

the Old Filing System (OFS); the Fast File System 
(FFS); and the Kasi File System with Directory 

Caching (FFS-DC). The different systems produce 
lastei loading and saving limes bul llSlx disks 
won't work on Workbench '2 or earlier systems. 
and getting an FFS disk to work with Workbench 
1.3 is a nightmare task for beginners. 

Fin, ill\. tx-tore a new disk can he used to store 
information, it must Ik- formatted to the relevant 

system. This in especially important it you warn to 

exi hange disks with people who Own older Amigas 

than you. Formatting a disk is a smightforward 
task - refei to your manual i<> see bow to do it. O 




There are two main problems with using the 
Shell to copy files. The first is that If you are not 
a good typist it can be a time-consuming business 
correcting your spelling mistakes (hit the up arrow 
to edit errors). The second problem with using the 
Shell is that it can't cope very well with file names 
which contain spaces. Whet you have to do Is put 
speech marks (") at the beginning and at the end of 
the pathname. 



Copying more than one file at a time is possi- 
1 ble with the Shell, but involves using wild 
cards. A wild card is part of a file name and 
although wild cards are a common computer oper- 
ation, the Amiga's are a bit strange in that you 
use a hash and question mark (#?) to denote part 
of a filename. For instance, the above example 
will copy all the files ending in ".iff" from one 
directory to another. 



The above example is how NOT to copy files. The 
_ name of a disk has been replaced with "DFO:", 
which refers to the disk which is currently in the 
Amiga's drive. However, the Amiga needs the 
Workbench disk to get the Copy command - which 
means the current disk will be the Workbench disk. 
Therefore you would copy everything to the 
Workbench disk. To avoid doing this always use disk 
names If you only have one disk drive.

of a functional version of Bhtz Basic 2. But that 
wont do you much good if you don't know how 
to use it . In this, the fifth of our tutorial series, 
we will be looking at some of the more compJt-

effects tan Ik- achieved, effects noi normal!) possi- 
ble in Amiga mode. This includes such things as 
dual playfield displays, smooth scrolling, double 
buffering and more. 

Blitz mode's main feature is its flexible control 
over the Amiga's display, ["his control is achieved 
through the use "I Slices. \ Slice ma) Ik- thought

ferent areas

There are some limits placed upon how multi- 
ple Sli. es ma\ he arranged: 

* Slices must not overlap in an) way. 

* Slices must not lie positioned horizon tall) beside 
r.uh other. This means that multiple Slices have 
to be positioned vertically on top ol each othet 

* When you specify an area for a Slice, you only 
have control over the Slier- vertical position, and 
its width and height. The horizontal starring posi- 
tion will automatical!) he centred based on the 
Slice's width. 

Sli< es normally require a gap ol at least two hori- 
zontal lines between the bottom ol one slice and 
the top ol another Slue, although there are some 
situations in which this is not absolutely neccs- 
sary.Here is a simple example ol setting up a basic 
Slice-driven lititz mode display: 



THIS tutorial is the copyright of Acid Software and may

BLITZ 
Slice 0.44.3 
Mo use Wait 



;go into Blitz mode! 
;set up slice 



We wont delve too deepl) into exactly how the 

Slice command works just right now. hut this 
example will set up a lo-res eight-colour Slice. 320 
pixels across b\ either 200 or 256 pixels down, 
depending on whethei you are using an NTSC ch 
a PAL machine. 

If you type in and compile this example, vou 
will notice that the displav contains some fairlv 
random graphics. This is because Slices sinipK 

control how the displa) appears- thev don't con- 
trol what is actual!) to appear. To use Slices to 
displa\ graphus. a Bitmap and some form ot the 
Show command is required: 

; slice showing a bitmap program example 

BLITZ ;Go into Blitz mode! 

BitMap 0.320.DispHeight.3 :set up an 8 colour bitmap 

CIs 2 fill bitmap with colour 2 

Slice 0.44.3 ;set up a slice 

Show ;show bitmap in the slice 
MouseWait 



Once the bitmap is initialised and Shown in this 
way, any Bitmap-related commands may be used 
to render graphics. Here is an example of the 
C in let command at work in a Slice: 

: a functional slice program example 

BLITZ ;go into Blitz mode 

BitMap 0.320.DispHeight.3 :set up an 8 colour bitmap 

Slice 0.44.3 ;set up a slice 

ShowO 

For k=1 To 100 ;draw 100 circles. 

Circlet Rnd(320).Rnd(DispHeight).Rnd(10)+5.Rnd(7)+1 

Next 

MouseWait 

ThrM examples arc all very simple in nature, bin 
illustrate the minimum number of steps involved 
in putting single Slices to work. 

The form of tile Slice command used in the 
above example- in a quick form of the standard 
Slice command. Using Slice this way limits you to 
having just one Slice ac me on the displav at once. 
If vou want multiple Slices, you must use the more 
complex Slice command. 

Here's a quick example of multiple Slices: 

; multi slice program example 
BLITZ :Blitz mode! Yeah! 

BitMap 0.320.100.3 ;make a bitmap 

CIs 2 ;fill it with colour 2 

BitMapOutput ;we're going to print to it... 

Print "Hello - Slice Magic!" ;like so... 

Slice 0.44.160.100,Sfrt8.3.8.32.320.320 ;whew! 
RGB 1.15.15,15 ;this affects slice 0's palette 

RGB 2.8.0.15 ;so does this 

Show ;show the bitmap 



Slice 1 ( 146,320 ( 100.Stff9,3.8,32.320.320 ;morewhew! 
RGB 1,15,15.0 ;this affects slice 1's palette 

RGB 2.0.8.15 ;ditto 

Show ;show the bitmap (same one!) 

MouseWait 

Note that the text Hello - Slice Magic! appears at 
two diflerent places on the displav. even though it 
was only printed once! This is because both Slices 
are Showing the same Bitmap, and it is on this 
Bitmap thai the text is rendered. Also note that 
the top Slice is in lores mode, whereas the bottom 
Slice is in hi-res mode. Finally, note that the posi- 
tioning of the Slices follows the rules outlined 
above. The Slices are slacked vertically, and there 

■ 

is a tWO-hne gap between them. 

One dual important word about Slices - Slice 
objects can not be individually Freed. This means 
once a Slice is created - it's there for good. The 
on!\ way to free up Slices is to free the lot ol them 
at once using the FiceSlices command. 

Statement; Slice 
Syntax:Slice Slice^.Y.FIags 
or: 

Slice Slice--. Y.Width. Height, (continued on next lino) 
Flags.BitPlanes.Sprites l Colours.Width1.Width2 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

The Slice command is used to create a Blitz 2 Slice 
object. Slices are primarily of use in Blitz mode, to 
allow vou to create highly customised displays. 

In both forms ol the Slice command, the Y 
parameter specifies the downwards pixel position 
of the lop of the Slice. A Y value ol 1 I will position 
Slices at about the lop ol the displav. 

In the First form of the Slice command. Flags 
relets to the number ol Bitplaues in any Bitmaps 
(the Bitmap's depth) to be shown in the Slice. 
This form of the Slice command will normallv ere- 
ati' a lo-res slice. 

However, this may be changed to a hi-res Slice 
b\ adding eight to die Flags parameter. For 
instance, a Flags value of four will set up a lores. 
4-Bitplaue (I6~eolour) Slid*, whereas a Flags 
value of 111 will set up a hi-res. 2-bitpIane 
(4-colour) slice. 

The width of a Slice set up in this way will be 
IV20 pixels for a lo-res Slice, or IvIO pixels for a hi- 
res Slice. The height of a Slice set up using this 
syntax will be 200 pixels on an NTSC Amiga, or 
25t» pixels on a l\\l. Amiga. 

The second form ol the Slice command is far 
more versatile, albeit a little more complex. Width 
and Height allow you lo use specific values for the 
Slice's dimensions. These parameters are specified 
in pixel amounts. IlitPlanes refers to the depth of 
an) Bitmaps you will be showing in this slice. 

Sprites refers lo how many Sprite channels 
should be available in this Slice. F.ach Slice may 
have up lo eight Sprite channels, allowing Sprites 
to be multiplexed. 

This is one way to overcome the Amiga's eight 



162 



Sprite limit ii is recommended thai ihe topmost 

Slice be created with all eight Sprite channels, 
because this will prevent Sprite flicker caused by 
unused Sprites. 

Colours refers to how manv Colour Palme 
entries should he available lor iliis Slice, and it 

should not he greater than 32. 

Width 1 and Width '2 specify the width, in pix- 
els, of anv Bitmaps to he shown in this Slice. If a 
Slice is sel up to he a dual plavfield Slice, then 
Width 1 refers to the width of the foreground 
Bitmap, and Widih'J refers to the width of the 
background Bitmap. 

However, if a Slice is NOl set up to he a dual 
plavfield Slice, it is important thai both the 
Width! and Width2 should he set to tlie same val- 
ues. These parameters will enable von to show 
Bitmaps which ate wider than the Slice itself. 
introducing the ability to smooth-scroll through 
large Bitmaps. 

The Flags parameter explanation has been left 
to last because it is the mosl complex of the 
parameters. Flags gives you control over manv 
aspects of the Slice's appearance, and just what 
effect the Slice has. Here are some example set- 
tings for Flags: 



Flaps 


Effect 


Max BitPlanes 


sms 


A standard lo-res slice 


6 


Sfff9 


A standard hi-res slice 


4 


Sfffa 


A lo-res, dual-playfield slice 


6 


Sfffb 


A hi-res. dual-playfiled slice 


4 


Sfffc 


A HAM slice 


6 



The Bit Planes parameter mav also be modi- 
fied to specify odd only or even only Bilplanes. To 
specify Creadon of foreground Bilplanes only, sim- 
ply set Bii 15 of the BitPlanes parameter. To 
specif)' creation of background Bilplanes only, set 
Bit 14 of the BitPlanes parameter. 

Statement: Use Slice 
Syntax: Use Slice Slice* 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

L'se Slice is used to set the specified Slice object as 
the currently used Slice. This is required for com- 
mands such as Show. ShowF, ShowB and Blitz 
mode RGB. 

Statement: FreeSlices 
Syntax: FreeSlices 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

FreeSlices is used to completely free all Slices cur- 
rently in use. Because there is no capability to Free 
individual Slices, this is the onlv means In which 
Slices mav he deleted. 

r 

Statement: Show 

Syntax: Show Bitmap#[.X,Y] 

Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

Show is used to display a Bitmap in the currently 
used Slice. This Slice should not be a dual play- 
field type of Slice. Optional \ and Y parameters 
may be used to position the Bitmap at a point 
other than its lop left. This is normally only of use 
in cases where a Bitmap larger than the Slice 
width and/or height has been set up. 

Statement' ShowF 

Syntax: ShowF BitMap#[,X,Y|,ShowB X]] 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

ShowF is used to displa\ a Bitmap in the fore- 
ground of the currently used Slice. The Slice must 
have been created with the appropriate Flags 
parameter to support dual-plavfield display. 



o display a Bitmap in the | ^" * 

i he currently used Slice. t^Ss- I 

V" parameters may be used ^^~§&^ 1 
nap ai .i point other than its "^V^^ 



Optional X and Y parameters may be used to 
show the Bitmap at a point other than its top left. 
The optional ShowB x parameter is onlv of use in 
special situations where a dual plavfield Slice has 
been created to display ONLY a fore- 
ground Bitmap. In this case, the X offset f /* 
of the background Bitmap should he 
specif led in the ShowB x parameter. 

Statement: ShowB T^' 

Syntax: ShowB BitMap#[.X,Y[,ShowF X]| 1 ] 

Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

ShowB is used to display a Bitmap i 
background of 
Optional X and 
to show the Bitmap at a point 
top left. Omitting the X and Y parameters is iden- 
tical to supplying X and Y values of (zero). The 
optional ShowF x parameter is only of use in spe- 
cial situations where a dual plavfield Slice has 
been created to display ONI X a background 
Bitmap. In this case, the X offset of the fore- 
ground Bitmap should be specified in the ShowF x 
parameter. 

Statement: ColSplit 

Syntax: ColSplit Colour Register.Red ( Green,Blue,Y 

Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

ColSplit allows von to change any of the Palette 
Colour registers at a position relative to the top of 
the currently used slice. This allows you to re-use 
Colour Registers at different positions down the 
screen to display different colours. Y specifies a 
vertical offset from the lop of the currently used 
Slice. 

Statement: CustomCop 
Syntax: CustomCop Copin$,Y 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

CustomCop enables programmers to introduce 
their own copper instructions at a specified posi- 
tion down the display. Copins$ refers to a string of 
characters equivalent to a series of copper instruc- 
tions. Y refers to a position down the display. 

Statement: ShowBlitz 

Syntax: ShowBlitz 

Modes: Blitz 

ShowBlitz re-displays the entire set up of Slices. 

1 his ma\ be necessary if you have made a quick 

trip into Amiga mode, and wish to return to Blitz 

mode with previously created Slices intact. 

Function: CopLoc 
Syntax: CopLoc 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

CopLoc returns the memory address of the Blitz 
mode copper list. All Slices. ColSplits. and 
CustOmCops executed are merged into a single 
copper list, the address of which may found using 
the CopLoc function. 

Function: CopLen 
Syntax: CopLen 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

CopLen returns the length, in bytes, of the Blitz 
mode copper list. All Slices. ColSplits. and 
CustoniCops executed are merged into a single 
copper list, the length of which may be found 
using the CopLen function. 

BLITTIIUG 

This section covers all commands which allow you 
to draw shapes on to Bitmaps using the Amiga's 
Blitter chip. 




Statement: Blit 

Syntax: Blit Shape#.X,Y[,Excessonoff] 

Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

Blit is the simplest of all the Mining commands. It 
will simply draw a shape objec l on to the currently 
used Bitmap at the pixel position specified by \.V. 
The shape's handle, if anv. will be taken into 
account when positioning the blit. 

The optional Kxcessonolf parameter only 
comes into use if you are Blitting a shape which 
has fewer Bilplanes than the Bitmap to which it is 
being Blitted. In this case. Kxcessonolf allows von 
to specify an on/off value for the excess Bilplanes: 
the Bilplanes beyond those altered by the shape. 
Bit zero of Kxcessonolf will specify an on/off value 
for the first excess bit plane and so on .The manner 
in which the shape is drawn on to the Bitmap mav 
be altered by using the BlilModc command. 

Statement: BlitMode 
Syntax: BlitMode BLTCONO 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

I he BlitMode command allows \ou to specify just 
how the Blit command uses the Blitter when draw- 
ing shapes to Bitmaps. B\ default. BlitMode is set 
to a Cookiemode which draws shapes 'as is'. 
However, this mode may be altered to produce 
other useful ways of drawing. Here are some ol the 
possible BLTCONO parameters and their effects: 



BLTCONO 



Effect 



CookieMode 
EraseMode 



InvMode 



SolidMode 



Shapes are drawn 'as is'. 

An area the size and shape of the 

shape will be 'erased' on the 

destination bitmap. 

An area the size and shape of the 

shape will be 'inversed' 

on the destination bitmap. 

The shape will be drawn as a 

solid area of one colour. 



:. ■ CookieMode 
Syntax: CookieMode 
Modes: Amiga/Blitz 

I'he CookieMode function returns a value which 
mav be used bv one of the commands involved in 
Blitting modes. Using CookieMode as a Blitting 
mode will cause a shape to be Blitted cleanly, 'as 
is', on to a Bitmap.

NEXT MONTH 

Next month Simon Armstrong will continue his 
explanation of the Blitz 2 Blitting commands and 
also look at the Blitz 10 functions.

ANIMATION IS FOR many peo- 

pit- the primary reason for using a 3D 
modelling system. Most 3D programs provide 
some means of animating die objects made in 
die modeller, and in some systems the whole 
interface is designed around the demands of ani- 
mation. 

I magi nr is no exception. Tools for the needs of 
animation arc included in even' Editor, although 
the Cycle, Stage and Action Editors are the pri- 
mary animation areas. At first, animation seems 
very difficult in Imagine, hut with a little practice. 
virtually any type of motion can be produced. 

The main problem is that the animation tools 
are scattered throughout the program so vou have 
to understand the whole system to some degree 
before vou start animating. This tutorial will lead 
vou through the basic tools ready for more com- 
plex animations in later months. In keeping with 
the tutorial theme of cars , we will crank up one ol 
the ones that came with the Issue 53 Coverdisk - 
the Camaro - sending it around a closed loop. 

1 Start a New Project in your data disk or 
MardDisk Imagine Projects folder - select the 
Editor/ DetailEditor and Object/Load the 
Camaro.new object from the Objects folder on the 
(ioverdisk. Although this object is an excellent 
ready-made car for our purposes, it has a number 
of faults thai must be put right first. II you have 
modelled a car ol your own based on the tutorial 
in A/54, use dial instead of the Camaro. You will 
need to resize it to match the small version of the 
Camaro produced here, and rotate the Y and Z 
axes (see below). You may find it useful to go 
through the whole tutorial with the Camaro 
before substituting your machine later. 

2 Pick the central Control -Axis in the Front view 
and select Object/Transformation, Click on 

the Position button in the Transformation 
Requester and change the X. Y, and 7. co-ordinates 
all to (MM). Press Return for each number and click 
Perform. This will move the car to the central co- 




ordinate origin. Select Object/Transformation 

again. ( Hick on the Alignment button. 

Change the figures to X=0, Y=0. Z=-90 
(minus 90). Select Transform Axes Onlv and 
Perform. The main Y axis ol vour car should now 
be pointing forwards to l>e aligned with the 
motion path later. 

3 Click on the Front button to the left of the 
window. It expands to full screen. Click the 
front wheel control point to Pick the wheels only. 
Select Object Attributes. 

In the Attributes Requester you will see thai 
the Light button is active. The wheels will act as 
light sources when rendered (many Imagine 
objects have these unexpected lighting effects. 
Click the Eight button. The Light requester 
appears. Click Drop u> turn oil the light. Click OK 



in Attributes to return to the From window and 
click on the next pari ol the car. turning thai light 
nil in a similar way. All lights must be turned oil. 
Make the front anil rear lights Bright by clicking 
on that button instead. 

4 Pick the whole cat with the central control 
point. Sele< i Object/ Transformation again 
and click on Size. Change \. Y. and Z from 32 to S 
to shrink it. Click Perform. Check that the whole 
car is Picked (blue purple) and then use 
Object/Save to store it under the name 
Camaro.sml in the Objects folder inside the pro- 
ject folder lor this project. 

NB, The Transformation Requester is invalu- 
able lor doing this sort of precise size and move 
work. Alignment. Size and Position tell you what 
those parameters are and allow vou to change

them directly. Rotate, Scale and Translate enable 
you to change the current parameters bv a given 

amounl (angle, percentage, distance). Both meth- 
ods are useful at limes when \<m feel that the Mov, 
Rot and Sri on-screen modes are too inaccurate, 

5 Leave the car on screen as a measure of scale 
and use Functions/ Add/Closed Path. This will 
place a small ellipse over the car at screen-centre. 
Pick this with Fl and select Mode/Edit Path. 

The Path will turn black and the control 
points white. Click on one point. Half the ellipse 
turns blue and the point red. The Mov and Rot 
mode buttons on the user strip can now be used to 
move and rotate the point. Functions Fracture will 
place a new control point on the curve. 

This can also be moved or rotated. Add four 
or five points to make a path for the car. Select

Mode/Pick Groups to turn Path Edit mode off. 
Make sure that only the Path is picked and 
Object/Save it in your Project/Objects folder with 
the name CarPath. 

NB. This is a Spline curve. Each point controls 
a section of path that must pass through the point 
smoothly. Each point can be rotated to change the 
curve. Practice modifying the curves to make an 
interesting path. (Keep the path inside the default 
uiw.oomed. Top View window.) 

6 Use Functions/ Add/Ground to add an infi- 
nite ground plane. Press Fl to Pick the 
selected ground. In Front view use Mov mode to 
move the ground down to the base of the wheels. 
(You may need to Zoom in to do litis accurately.) 
Select Object/Attributes and click on Colour. Set 
R=50, G=I40, B=50 pressing Return after each. 
Click Texture 1. Select the Camo texture from the 
I exiuies folder on the Coverdisk. 

Change Random Seed to a random number 
and RGB Green #1 to 122 and then press Return. 
Click OK in both Requesters. Ensure only Ground 
is Picked and Save in your project folder. 

NB. If you wish to add other objects to the 
final scene Load and Modify them at this point.

be used as a Ground instead of the Primitive 
Ground. If you feel adventurous the path could be 
lifted up 10 go over the bumps by moving one or 
more points of the Path up in the Front View. 

7Seleci Project/Stage Editor. Object/Load the 
Ground. Camaro.sml and CarPath objects. 
Choose Display/Camera View. Adjust the camera 
position to show the whole scene. This depends on 
the size of Path created. If you kept it within a non- 
zoomed window, these changes should work, 
otherwise it's trial and error! 

Project/SaveChanges and move to the Action 
Editor. Horizontal lime bars represent object 
parameters - initially just coloured blobs for one

frame. Click on the Info button then on the 
Camera/Size bar (purple) and change the Y size 
from l>4() to 320 - press Return. This makes the 
lense angle wider, showing more of the action. 

Click the Position bar (green) and change 
X=180, Y=-360 and Z=60. This moves the camera 
down and back. Click the alignment bar (blue) 
and set X=-I2 (minus 12) to lilt the camera tip a 
little. Project/SaveChanges. Check the setup in the 
Stage F.ditor by moving the car to various path 
positions in the top view. (The camera is the dou- 
ble circle with line showing lense direction.) 

8 Select Project/ Action Editor. Change Highest 
Frame# to 20. Use Rename to change Door to 
Camaro, and Path to Carpal h to avoid confusion. 
Click the red Actor bar for the Car and change the 
final frame to 20. Repeal this action for the 
Carpath and the Ground. Use the Delete button to 
remove the Align (blue) and Position (green) bars 
of the (^ar and then the Add button to add new 
bars, clicking ai the first and last frame positions. 

When you add the position bar a small 
requester asks you to Specify Type - choose Follow 
Path so the car will follow the path exactly. A sec- 
ond requester prompts for path name, 
acceleration and speed. Give only the pathname 
for now. Adding the Alignment bar you are

the car will point along the path, turning at bends. 

9 Click the Add button then click in the frame 1 
and 20 positions of the timeline, level with the 
Actor bar. Select 1-ight Source. In the next 
requester click on Cast Shadows and OK. 

Now lets Animate! Return to the Stage editor. 
You will be prompted for a frame number - press 
Return to accept the default 1 for now. 
Animate/Make creates a wireframe test. 
Animate/Play Loop plays it. 

Obviously with such a complex path 20 frames 
is pathetically small. If you have a limited system, 
make the path simpler, otherwise use more frames. 
(Change Highest Frame# and Final Frame 
Number on each lime bar.) 

In this preview, the first and last frames are the 
same, glitching the animation. The way round this 
are too complex to describe now. Once you have 
tweaked the scene and camera it's time to render. 

4fl ^^ Move to the Project Editor. (Mick on New 
\M Button for a new rendering sub-project. 
Name it ScanLoResl. In the rendering requester 
select Scanline render, 320x250 resolution, ll.BM- 
24 file format, MAM Amiga mode, and Imagine 
Anim format to view the test anim easily (Imagine 
makes a pig's ear of making normal Anims. so 
make your proper Anim using the 24-bit frames in 
another program such as DPamt IV ot ADPro. 

Try a test render by clicking on a frame num- 
ber and then on Generate. If it looks good, click 

on the Final Frame then on Range, press Return 
and all the frames except the last (the buggy glitch 
frame) are selected. Click on Generate and go 
away. On your return - assuming the render is fin- 
ished - click on Make and accept its demands but 
say No to Erase Files for now. 

Finally, Load the anim and play it. If that looks 
good try a new render sub-project with Trace 
selected to give you a ray-trace showing shadows. 
You will have to use a small screen - mavbe 
320x256 or less and even then it will lake some- 
thing approaching the life of this Government 
(assuming it is alive) to complete. It should look 
brilliant though! , 1?

PRIZE 



WAYNE'S AMIGA 

I have spotted an 
Amiga in a film. The 
film is Wayne's World 2, and 
Garth, the blond-haired one, is using it 
with a Video Toaster, although I'm not 
sure what he is trying to do. The film 
isn't out here in Britain yet (It will be by 
the time you read this - Ed). So unless one 
of vour staff has seen it in America, you 
won't be able to confirm it. 

Owen Rolfe-Herbert, 
Newhaven 

Oh yes, we can confirm it, even though we 
haven 't seen the film at the time of writing. 
Incidentally, t went on holiday to New York 
just before Christmas, and Wayne's World 
2 7ci7s opening in the cinemas over there on 
10th Dec. I left on 7th Dec , so I was greatly 
disappointed, because I am a big fan of the 
first movie. 

It would seem that Wayne and Garth 
use the Video Toaster to produce their public 
access TV show. But even more interest- 
ingly, Dana Carrey's (Garth's) brother was 
part of the team who developed the Toaster. 
So Dana was giving his brother's handiwork 
a bit of a free plug. Have a T-Shirt. 

COMM ON 
EVERYBODY 

Why not more about comms? 

Nige 

And why not? Turn now to page 31, and see 
the start of our regular comms coverage. 
And as you read tins, the Amiga Format 
BBS Spong, is in the final stages of testing. 
It wilt be up and running before the next 
issue of Amiga Format hits the streets. 



Riclmrd Baguley is responsible for 
introducing Amiga Format to the wouder- 
ful world of comms, and it's difficult now to 
imagine how we ever managed without 
being connected to the rest of the world. 

By the way, nice card Nige! We would 
reproduce the excellent picture of an 
Ankylosaurus if copyright didn't prevent us 
from doing so. 

MERCHANDISE 'EM 

Last weekend I went to the new Comet 
superstore in Exeter, and like most of us 
when we go into such shops. 1 had my 
usual walk around the part where the 
home computers are on display. 

Imagine mv surprise when I saw a 
CD***- locked in a glass case, linked to a 
1084S monitor displaying all its glorious 
shades of black and white. I enquired, 
and a young lad told me they were 
monochrome models of both the CE>" 
and 1084S. After containing my laughter 
none too well, I proceeded to show their 
resident expert where the colour control 
on the monitor was. While he blushed, I 
discovered that this model did not work, 
and could only display in black and 
white. "I bet you're not selling many of 
these," I said. "None," he replied. 

Imagine my horror that when 1 
went in a week later, that same machine 
was still displaying in monochrome, 
while the Japanese consoles had a 
blonde in showing her wares to the kids, 
and more importantly the dads. 

When we talk of the superior fea- 
tures of our machine, we are preaching 
to the converted. It's the staff of the box 
shifters we should really be giving the 
hard sell to. People like this are respon- 



sible for a huge number of sales, but it 
should be so manv more. 

Get a team of Commodore sales 
people to teach them when the "Closed 
for statf training'' sign goes up. It's got to 
be a cost-effective way of making sure 
that the sales staff know what they are 
talking about. 

Martin Heskins, Ex mo nth 

How we agree. There lias been a huge 
response to the CD*- from Amiga Format 
readers, but most are waiting to get a CD 
add-on for their .47200. Tlie majority of 
CO 3 - sales will not be to established Amiga 
owners, instead they will be to the 'must 
Itave ' kids who want the latest and the great- 
est in home computers. It is for this reason 
tlmt initial reports indicate that the CD 32 is 
shifting (or quicker through the High Street 
multiples (Tandy, Rumbelows. Comet and 
so on) tlian it is through specialist dealers. 

So, if really would be better- if 
Commodore could implement a national 
merchandising scheme. Because the people 
who are selling the most CD*~s are the peo- 
ple who know least about them, all too often 
they are sitting there unloved while the jap 
consoles are effectively merchandised. 

Sadly, as we all know. Commodore 
aren 't in the financial position to do every- 
thing they want to at present. But CD**s 
are selling well despite this, so maybe next 
year you 'II see them being sold properly. 

Until them, Commodore should make 
sure alt C£>*-s are shipped with a demo disk. 
So if a shop docs get around to actually 
turning on the machine, there would be 
something visually impressive for prospec- 
tive purchasers to see.

GOOD GAME, GOOD GAME 



It's easy saying that payability is 
the most important thing in a 
game, but how do you make a 
game playable? Well that's where 
I come in. After studying the 
good the bad and the ugly games 
I've compiled a list of golden 
rules that all software houses 
must follow! 

• Practice using different graph- 
ics techniques because having 
some kind of new graphical tech- 
nique in a game is always 
refreshing to see, and can help 
break the monotony of the game. 
Yes, I know it hasn't got a lot to 
do with payability, but I put it in 
anyway. 

• Make sure that the game is not 
the same all the way through, 
because if it is, this makes the 
game boring and feels as if you 
are not getting anywhere. 
Change the backgrounds, the 
sprites, anything! 

• Make sure the game has a good 
difficulty curve. Making the game 
hard all the way through might 
boost its lasting appeal, but no- 
one will play it because they 
can't get anywhere. 

• Try to include a two-player 
option. Nearly all two-player 
games are twice as popular and 
twice the fun. 

• Include a two-button option. 
Pressing a button to jump in a 
platform game is a lot easier 
than having to push the joystick 
at some awkward angle. 

• Collision detection. A game 
with rubbish collision detection is 
almost impossible to play - so 
get it right! 

• Waiting around. OK, it's all 
right when the Amiga is loading. 
But why do we have to wait 
when some boring animation is 
on when we've already seen it a 
thousand times? Why can't we 
just press Fire and skip it? Also, 
it's a pain when you have to wait 
and watch the Amiga adding up 
all the bonus points at the end of 
a level until you can carry on 
with the game. 



• With the new A1200 we are 
experiencing some problems. 
With games such as Zool and 
Oscar. The backgrounds are now 
so detailed and complex that we 
can no longer see the enemy 
sprites, or we don't know what 
to pick up. So make sure that 
enemy sprites stand out, espe- 
cially enemy bullets. 

And that's it! I hope you agree 
with me, because I think there is 
something desperately wrong 
with most Amiga games. If you 
look at Zool and Oscar (AGA) 
you'll see that they break a cou- 
ple of the above rules. But if you 
look at the very playable and 
popular Mario and Sonic, you'll 
see that they don't break a rule 
in the book. 

I hope that this helps at least 
one software house for there 
{sic) own sake - just use the 
above rules as a guideline. 

Chris Pett, Gwynedd 

Cheers for that! 

I am sure that the large soft- 
ware houses can now sleep safely 
in their (for that is how you spell 
it!) beds, safe in the knowledge 
that tomorrow they can create 
great games, just by following 
your rules. 

Seriously though, some of 
your points are quite accurate. 
But it is unlikely that, merely 
by following your rules, a 
company could imbue their 
new release with that elusive 
quality of play ability. There 
are many games that abide by 
your rules, but are still 
abysmal. And there are some. 
Skidmarks for instance, which 
break about nine of your eight 
rules, and still have more paya- 
bility than Mario the Hedgehog. 

Playability, as any games 
journo will tell you, is the key 
factor in making a good game 
into a great one. But no-one 
knows what defines playability. 

There are a number of other 
things we would like to add to 
your list, like second (and hard) 
drive support, better level 
design, saved high score tables, 
and modem links. 

What do you think are the 
vital elements of a great game? 



AUTOSUGGESTION 

During 3D Week, Tomorrow's World 
showed a demo Of an Autostereogram: a 
3D picture which you don't need special 
3D glasses to see. Naturally, it was gen- 
erated on a computer. There was also an 
animated version. 1 must admit that I 
only saw swirling dots, but I have since 
acquired a decipherable image. 
A friend of mine claims that 
Autostereograms (good word, innit?) 
can be generated on the Amiga. How 
about an article on this fascinating sub- 
ject, or better still a Coverdisk with the 
program on it? I would love to be able to 
generate these images myself, but don't 
know where to start. 
Art McKendrictc, Edinburgh 

/ thought Autostereograms were old musk 
centre players that could change disc until I 
tried Smirnoff. Then someone showed me 
one of Those Pictures, 

I spent weeks, nay months, staring at 
them, but I couldu 'I see anything. I was con- 
vinced they were part a global conspiracy to 
make me look stupid. Then one day, in that 
shop in So/fit where they sell old movie 
posters and stuff. I saw the light. They are 
amazing, it s true. And you can (we believe) 
create them using the Amiga. Someone sent 
us the program, and we were dead keen to 
use it on the Coverdisk. But when we tried 
it, it kept crashing. 




So if there s anyone out there who is 
expert in Autostereoscopytographism, (or 
whatever it 's called) give us a call. And 
whoever sent us the program, thanks, but 
can you send a version that works please? 

CD CONCEPTS 

I've got an idea or two for Commodore. 
How about an A1200 CD-ROM drive 
that's the same width as the machine, 
creating an A4000-style base (but 
reduced in height). Include in this a 
spare floppy /syquest drive bay and a 
duplicate edge connector to allow those 
oi use who have trapdoor expansion 
slots to still use them. 

Second idea: Add another model to 
the Amiga family. TheCDMM, with a 
look similar to the CDTV that wouldnt 
look out of place in a home AV set-up. 
This unit should come with integral 
FMV module. 

What are your thoughts? 

Gary Williams. Kent 

We think Iwlh units you suggest are serious 

possibilities. 

The proposed CD* 2 drive for theAUOO 
is currently the subject of much concentra- 
tion at Commodore. We believe that such a 
unit is vital to the future of the Amiga, But 
at present. Commodore are unable to reveal 
wliat form, and what specification such a 
unit will possess. 



HOW MANY? 

Readers may have a little difficulty read- 
ing the fxtge (left), but those with keen 
eyes will see tlial it is a vicious parody 
at our expense. And a good one too. 
Wliat Richie Brown, the author of this 
tabloid sleazesheei is referring to is 
the amount of copies I accidentally 
implied Amiga Format is selling. In 
the Christmas issue, while making a 
friendly jibe at PC Format maga- 
zine (now edited by ex CU Amiga 
editor, Dan Slingsby), I said they 
sold 73,000,000 copies, rather 
than the more accurate 73,000. 
As Richie points out, if we were, 
as I claimed, selling twice tliat 
many, but only declaring sales 
of 140,000,1 would be pocket- 
ing absolutely z>a$t amounts 
of cash. Sadly, we're not, and 
I'm not.

PC PUSS 

Call me picky (OK, you 're picky - Ed) but 
for an Amiga-dedicated magazine, and 
I'm assuming you are, please explain 
your treacherous behaviour in using 
PCs in the office when Commodore pro- 
duce such fine machines. 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in your 
Christmas issue, the photographs of Sue 
White, Richard Jones and probably all 
the others show them using Amigas 
onlv as a second machine, if at all. How 
do you plead? 

Will Taylor, Waterlooville 

Wt* plead guilty, But as you invited me to 
correct you if you are wrong. . . you are! 

Sue and Richard were using Apple 
Macintosh computers. We would not have a 
PC in the Amiga Format offices. The Mac 
is Sue's, ami Richard's only machine, 
because their jobs do not require them to 
touch an Amiga. OK, they do venture into 
the test room now and then for a game of 
Sensible Soccer or Micro Machines. But 
apart from that, they use Macs. We have 
never made a secret of this fact. In fact, in 
our 1993 annual, we did a large feature 
explaining what machines we use, and why. 

Things have changed a good bit since 
then, and we use more Amigas for more 
things these days. We are Amiga enthusi- 
asts, we have Amigas at home. But for 
desktop publishing, we have to remain com- 
patible with the rest of the company. There is 
still not an Amiga program to rival Quark 
XPress, but PageStream 3 is out soon! 

COPY DF DOAH! 

I've just got a new Amiga 1200 Desktop 
Dynamite pack. On my first attempt at 
backing up a disk I accidentally wiped 
it! And it was the most important one, 
Workbench 3.0 itself. I would be very 
grateful if you could tell me of any way 
to gel a copy of it back on to the master 
disk (without having to buy the disk 
again!). For instance is there an address 
that 1 could send the master disk to? I'm 
hoping desperately that you can help. 

Ben Griffiths, Hexham 

// is very important, when backing up a disk, 
that you remember to write protect the 
source disk. You do this by moving the little 
tab at the corner of the disk so that you can 
see through the hole. If you do this, there is 
absolutely no way you can accidentally erase 
your disk. 



But the horse has already bolted. Tlu? 
best thing for you to do in this instance is 
send your disk, with a letter explaining what 
lias liappened, to: 
Customer Support 
Commodore UK Ltd 
Commodore House 
The Switchback 
Gardener Road 
Maidenhead 
Berks Sib 7XA 

They will happily replace your disk. 

PRICY 

I was wondering why Commodore 
aren't really trying to make the Amiga 
more competitive. Its real threat besides 
the consoles are the PC clones and Macs. 
They could cut the price of the 
A4000/030 so it could beat the hell out 
of the PCs, or Commodore could add 
some extra goodies such as a video digi- 
tiser, a genlock and a CD-ROM drive, et 
voila! a multimedia workstation to com- 
pete with the Mac Quadra. 
What do you think. 
James Mifsud, Czira, Malta 

The consoles no longer pose the threat they 
once did to the Amiga. Noiv we have Ctr*-, 
all the consoles can boast is more games (but 
for how long?) and bigger advertising bud- 
gets. As for putting together a multimedia 
machine, it 's an appealing idea, but it could 
also put off some people. If the digitiser or 
genlock included in the package didn 't have 
the specification they required. It is far better 
to let people mix and match as they please. 

There is no doubt though, that the price 
of PCs and Macs are very competitive when 
compared to the Amiga 4000s. We believe it 
is vital that the Amiga competes on price 
with these machines. Commodore often point 
out that Macs and PCs have been forced into 
a downward price spiral , while the Amiga 
has managed to retain its pricepoint. This is 
true, but one side effect of the PCfMac price 
war has been that customers can now get a 
25Mhz 68030-based machine with 4Mb of 
RAM and an 80Mb hard drive for about 
€870. And this includes a 14-inch, high res 
colour monitor. A similar specification 
A4000 can be found in the pages of Amiga 
Format for £1168 - GOO more! 

It is a fact that Amiga software is much 
cheaper than Mac and PC equivalents, But 
it is only a matter of time until old versions

THE MAN AT THE TOP 

Keen to increase communication between The Big C 
and the Amiga community, Commodore UK's 
general manager David Pleasance, will be replying 
to your letters personally on a monthly basis. 




GET COMPETITIVE! 

I have been an avid devotee of the Commodore Amiga for many 
years, but now I am a very worried man. The reason for my con- 
cern is the huge financial power which Sega and Nintendo have 
gained over recent years because of their encroachment into the 
market position of the Amiga. 

Commodore, with their recent console-inspired advertising 
campaign for the CD 3 *, seem to have overlooked the most basic 
principles of marketing strategy. I feel strongly that Commodore 
must reassess their competitive focus. 

At present they cannot hope to survive headlong competition 
with the Japanese console giants even though their product 
(CD 32 ) is vastly superior. 

We have seen photographs in your eminent publication of 
Messrs Pleasance and Eggebrecht. but not of the Commodore 
marketing director. Does such a person exist at Commodore? 

Samuel Deluca 



Firstly, thank you for your loyalty and don't worry too much 
about anything - life is far too short for that. In the very latest 
survey (up until the end of October 1993) Commodore have 
increased their market share of the home computer market in the 
UK to a very dominant 94 per cent! 

The release of the Amiga CD 32 into the realms of the console 
market has already, in only two months, had a major impact, par- 
ticularly on Sega's Mega CD. 

I must assume from your comments about our latest advertis- 
ing campaign, that you are somebody who is qualified in these 
matters, and speaking on behalf of our advertising agency and 
our two PR companies, I can only suggest you make better con- 
tact with us to offer your suggestions as to how to do things 
better. We are not too proud to take good advice. 

Finally, you may or may not be aware that I share in the 
responsibility for running Commodore UK as Joint Managing 
Director - Sales and Marketing. However, I do have a marketing 
team, headed up by Dawn Levack, who is national marketing 
manager and Jonathan Anderson, who handles product market- 
ing. Decisions relating to marketing strategy are discussed and 
agreed as a team. 

Ultimately, the plans for Commodore's future marketing 
strategy lie firmly with me. I do not however, believe that this 
medium is the right vehicle with which to announce my strategy 
for the future, I might as well send all the details express post to 
each of my competitors! 

On the serious side, I will be announcing shortly an exciting 
new concept for the professional and multimedia sides of 
our business. Watch this space.

How to contact 





(MAT 



The best way to get an answer from Amiga Format is to make 
sure you're addressing your letter to the right person (or 
indeed, department) in the first place... 

• We get literally hundreds of letters and faxes a day, so if we 
were to try to answer them all personally we would never 
have any time to actually write Amiga Format. So we're sorry, 
but we can't reply in person. 

• We are available for enquiries by telephone every Tuesday 
between 10.30am and 6pm, but please be patient because the 
lines do get rather busy. 

• Our advertising department can help with problems con- 
cerning companies who advertise in the magazine if you 
phone during normal office hours. 

• Our subscriptions service and the Amiga Format Mail Order 
department are not in the same building as the magazine 
itself. Both can be contacted on 0458 273279. 




(T- 




If you have any problems with the technical side of your Amiga, with 
hardware or with serious software, Nick Veitch will try to answer you 
in the mag. Or. if you have any advice for others or any handy tips to 
share, send them in and you could win a prize.

TO BOLDLY GO 

I read with interest on the letters page of 
the December issue of Amiga Format thai 
you are big fans of Star Trek. Please 
could you consider inserting a small 
advert to inform people of Stage 8 a 
Next Generation fan club. 

Membership is £5.00 per year, and 
for this you get four newsletters with 
up-to-date information about your 
favourite programme. Send an SAE to 
Stage 8 c/o Sue Bunce, 1 1 Charingworth 
Road, Oakwood, Derby, DE21 2QD. 

Sue Bunce, 
Membership Sec, Stage 8 

Sorry Sue. But adverts in Amiga Format 
aren l free. In fact lliey are really quite 
expensive, when compared with say, a Tzvix 
or a Yorkie /wr. But then, how else can you 
reach I50,IHX) plus dedicated Amiga users. 

We definitely can 'I offer you a free 
advert for your Star Trek - Next 
Generation fan club, called Stage 8. Nor 
can we suggest that any of our readers who 
happen to be Next Generation fans send you 
a stamped addressed envelope to 1 1 
Charingworth Road, Oaktwott, Derby,

CALLING COLIN 

My name is Colin Campbell and I am a 
fifth year pupil at Killmining Academy. 
I am currently doing a project in higher 
computing and the movie industry. I 
would be very grateful if you could 
please send me some information on the 
different kinds of hardware and soft- 
ware used with he Amiga to create 
special effects. 

Colin Campbell, Dairy 

Don 't think that false address and scrawly 
handwriting fool us for a second. You 're 
really Colin Campbell, publisher of Amiga 
Power, ami you are trying to get some tech- 
nical information for a feature. You could 
have just come down to our office and asked 
you know! 

Anyway, if you want to read about the 
sfwcial effects in Babylon 5, get a COpy of 
Amiga Format 49. If you want to read 
about SeaQuest, issue 54 has a report. And 
since l\)th these shows, and some of the pre- 
liminary work for Jurassic Park, were 
created using the NewTek Video Toaster, 
getting out your copy 52 of Amiga Format 



with our huge 10-pagc Toaster feature 
Would be a good idea If you are missing any 
of these issues, turn now to page 140 of this 
issue and find out hoiv to get them from our 
back issues department. 

TO BETA OR 
WOT TO BETA 

I am unashamed to confess that I am one 
of those proud Amiga owners who bat- 
tle it out through sleepless nights to 
finish that one final screen which always 
seems that bit too hard. 

My hunger is insatiable. I've fin- 
ished Alien Breed Special Edition and 
Alien Breed 2 in one week and Flashback 
in two weeks. I have even managed to 
fight my way through hundreds of mis- 
sions in Wings and finish it. Has anyone 
ever finished Wings? 

But, alas, the world being the unfair 
and unforgiving place it is, I do not have 
the unlimited funds required to keep up 
my nocturnal activities to satisfaction. 
Because I am a firm believer in the 
wrongness of piracy, I thought 1 could 
lend my talents to those marvellous 
institutions, the software houses, as a 
beta tester. But I don't have a clue where 
to start. If I can't keep up my pseudo 
profession, my only option will be to 
spend the nights... (at this point the 
author lapses into graphic descriptions of 
act* far viler than software piracy, none of 
winch he has any intention of ever actually 
carrying out - Ed) 

Please for the good of society as a 
whole, point me in the right direction to 
find mv very own Yellow Brick Road. 

Carlo Contaldfi, London 

Thanks for that Carlo, tve have forwarded 
your address to the Metropolitan Police 
Dangerous loonies Squad for their files. 

Your idea of becoming a Beta tester is a 
good one, and one which many other people 
liave Itad, so competition is high, but the 
wages are not. But it does provide a way of 
playing games for most of your waking 
hours. The obvious course of action is to 
wage a concerted campaign of applications to 
the major software houses. Their addresses 
are in the adverts in Amiga Format. 

One other option, given your fertile 
imagination, would be to apply to magazine 
like Amiga Power, or any of the many con- 
sole magazines /Sega Zone, Sega Power 
etc) for a job as a games reviewer, in fact, 
Future Publishing'^ console mags f address 
at the back of this issue) liave recently 
employed someone as a full time games 
player, to help them provide hints and tips 
for their readers! 

MOTORBIKES 

I'm sick and tired of computers. Can't 
you write about something else for a 
change? Use your imagination, for God's 
sake! There's a whole world out there, 
and all you can think about is comput- 
ers. Come on, get a wife.
